As Cute as a bug's ear

Meaning :Very cute.

Does bugs have an ear. In reality they do not have .Bugs or insects can detect sound. They have their own mechanisim to detect sound . They do not physically feature similar to a human hear.

Other similarities to this phrase are 'as white as snow', 'as busy as a bee' .These words almost refers to a property that is representative of the item , that is mentioned. But a bugs/insects is no way cute.

In mid 19 the century this phrase was introduced in southern states of America and is still in existance. The phrase is used extensively in this part of the world.It can be defined that since bugs/insects are able to detect even minute high pitch sound , they were called as acute. This word 'acute' has taken the word cute in modern times.
