Beware of Greeks bearing gifts

(originally posted March 26, 2006)

"Beware of Greeks bearing gifts."

Definition: Can be best described as never let your guard down.

Origin: Those of you who have seen "Troy" the movie should remember the story of the Trojan Horse... Which is indeed a gift from the Greeks. So... beware of Greeks giving you a gift! It may not be good for you!

Variations : With the computer age, this saying is sometimes transformed into "beware of geeks bearing gifts", usually used by anti-virus companies.
