Clog Iron

A clog iron is a special shaped piece of iron used on the base of clogs to stop the nail heads from wearing out through excessive use. Workers in the mills, mines, iron and steel works and factories at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution needed strong, cheap footwear and clogs became an everyday but popular necessity. If you knew someone who was an expert or somebody who was slightly scholarly then it was normal to say "tha noes a lot abart clog iron thee". In other words you know a lot of rubbish about something not very important. "E duntarf nosum stuff".
