  • Actually, in a metaphoric sense, ticker can be a very poetic way to describe the heart. The idea that the heart is the internal time piece of the body, slowly ticking, winding down every down, until it runs out of beats and the clock stops.

  • bum-ticker

  • Wordnick should have a new category for some words: 'expressions'. Could one look up an expression? Not easy to do in most dictionaries as an expression is not a word. It is also not a quote or quite an adjective or adverb. Nor is it necessarily slang. It may be specialized usage, however. In this case, my question is: is the expression 'bum-ticker' a term deriving from the ticker-tape of elegraphy or does it refer to the slang use referring to the heart or a clock? Extended, does 'bum-ticker' describe more than just bad news and general trends such as a stock-market crash? As such, expressions evade wordsmiths and linguistics generally.
