A whale of a good time
Meaning: enjoying themselves very much
Origin: The blue whale being the biggest creature on earth, a “whale of” anything is “a large amount of” it. As well as “whale of a time” people used to say “a whale of a lot” and “a whale of a job”. It’s US slang from around late 1800’s
Whole nine yards
Meaning: everything or all
Origin: The expression comes from the old square-rigged sailing vessels that had three masts with three yards of sails on each. The whole nine yards meant all sails were up.
