Side note: I always wondered why it was that clams somehow were the touchstone for happiness. Then I saw an old interview with a WWI vet, who in describing how pleased he and his fellow soldiers were over something, used what apparently is the complete phrase. He said they were "happy as clams at high tide."
Now I understand the phrase. We have just lazily truncated the phrase to where we only use a meaningless portion of it.
