I often heard it phrased this way, as well (somehow I want to think it was used in the Three Stooges skit (not sure, but..)): "well, this is another fine mess you got us into."

Topic: Moby-Dick or Moby Dick

Hello Wordnicks -

The question is which is correct - "Moby-Dick" or "Moby Dick?"

Wikipedia = Moby-Dick / TheFreeDictionary = Moby Dick

The original book cover has it "Moby-Dick; or, The Whale."

Yet, in researching book covers it shows both ways.

Or, do we cop-out & presume both are correct & leave it like that?

For the record, Mr. Melville was unavailable to comment.

With Thanks,

Have not heard that particular phrase. However, I do recall the phrase "Over one's head!"
