Sleep Like a Log

This is a companion expression to the one posted last week, “sleep like a top.” Both mean to sleep soundly, but “sleep like a log” makes more sense to me. Logs truly are immobile while tops only project the image of immobility while they are spinning. The Phase Finder adds that some have suggested “sleep like a long is derived” “…from the sound of sawing being like the sound of snoring.”
