The Horns of a Dilemma
Today, one learned from The Bloke of the phrase 'on the horns of a dilemma' to mean that one is faced with two equally unpleasant options and has to choose one.
Or to call it "Hornucopia" also proposed by The Bloke. He is too clever by halves.
A CORNucopia is a symbol of food and abundance dating back to the 5th century BC. (What did we do before Wikipedia)
Hmmm. As The Bloke seems to be full of it, one is inclined to go with the latter of the two.
