When you hear a person say: "I hate their guts", --are you always mystified and puzzled just as to why they would choose to take strong objection to someone's intestines, entrails or bowels?

It means that you hate someone from deep inside them, right from there inner core, to there outer self, so no I am never mystified by that. I have never hated anyone that much, but there are some nasty people that have got that much hate in them, and to them I give a smile, :))

It supposedly originates in Ancient Egypt where the Pharaoh would execute his enemies or dissidents and have their entrails ripped out while dying.These would then be preserved and put on display as a warning to show what happens to rebels or protestors.The records of these deaths and accompanying pictures were written in hieroglyphics for all to see regarding whose guts the Pharaoh hated.

I don't watch the Simpsons either. I thought it would be part of an English writing or poetry (Flanders).

Not really as I have better things to do with my life then wonder about the whys of something that is just a figure of speech and besides there are several parts of the Human anatomy that would be worse to use here instead of guts, so this is one of those things that is well hidden in the garage somewhere
