Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Sense
 
  No more sense than a shoat (young pig) in pickle.
            —Thomas Lodge

  Plain good sense, like a dish of solid beef or mutton, is proper only for peasants; but a ragout of folly, well dressed with a sharp sauce of wit, is fit to be served up at an Emperor’s table.
            —Lord Lyttelton
