In response to “cat out of the bag

That expression comes out of a dumb joke. It is told with the assumption that all persons of a certain class are thieves. So the hero stuffs a lynx into his suitcase and abandons it in a tempting location. Eventually some ni- uh, I mean, member of that certain class steals it. The fun starts when he "lets the cat out of the bag".

Nobody ever tries to explain howinell the hero managed to catch a lynx and stuff it into the bag.
