sacas pan de debajo de las piedras

Well I'm male and i find it sounds awful, maybe it was uttered by a de-sexed parrot. Well, what an idiom and there goes my version: "sacas pan de debajo de las piedras" if you refer to someone who can take profit from anything. I'm too shy to type the other version, that is, the literal one, if what you mean is just that...bueno, va:"le lames el sudor de los c.. a un muerto". Look up the "c" word under "ball" or y'know, any other synonym you might think of. Puritanism is back and well... :-)
