Meta Prompt: The answer to the meta is a three-word phrase
This was one of those night-time meta ideas that pop into your head while you are supposed to be sleeping. While it's not like my usual metas, I think you will still enjoy it. The answer to the meta is a three-word phrase.

    Fun, Ben. I've always heard the phrase "on the improvement", but I knew what you wanted.
    • benchen71 constructor · 5 days ago
      We Aussies are known for shortening everything!
    • SJMcK 🤓3:27 · 5 days ago
      Not a phrase I’ve ever heard. Seems to be used in Australia and Great Britain.
      • benchen71 constructor · 5 days ago
        Hee hee... that's what you get with benchen71 metas: Australian culture and jargon!
      • boharr 3s · 5 days ago
        You people say this?
        • benchen71 constructor · 4 days ago
          We do.
        • Ergcat 3:15 · 5 days ago
          Never heard that phrase but it worked! Thank you, Ben, for something different and fun!
          • Cindy Heisler 2s · 5 days ago
            Never heard it put quite like that, but then I thought it was probably an Aussie thing. Thanks, Ben!
            • KayW 🤓3:18 · 5 days ago
              You are on quite a roll this week, Ben! I never heard this phrase but google revealed an Australian song so I knew it had to be correct :D
              • Carolyn 6s · 5 days ago
                Nice change!
                • Laura M 🤓4:38 · 5 days ago
                  Different and fun! Though not enough crosses to fill the gaps in my knowledge about some of the entries :-)
                  • woozy 🤓5:17 · 5 days ago
                    An alternative answer could be "Do one better" (keeping the C and then D in as corners-- Do = con one=the better=improved).
                    Can't say I've ever heard of "on the improve" (or on the improvement)
                    • DebbieC 🤓3:01 · 5 days ago
                      Never heard the phrase. Thanks for the education. Is it similar to American/British "on the mend"?
                      • benchen71 constructor · 4 days ago
                        Yes, that would be an equivalent.
                      • whimsy 🤓4:26 · 5 days ago
                        Thanks for having us try something different!
                        • THC 🤓2:15 · 4 days ago
                          Thanks, Ben!
                          • Capn Rick 🤓3:20 · 4 days ago
                            Fun one, Ben!
                            • dplass 🤓1:03 · 4 days ago
                              Unclear why I shouldn't use the starting C and ending D... and +1 to never having heard this phrase.
                              • benchen71 constructor · 3 days ago
                                Because they are not turns.
                              • ReB 5:40 · 2 days ago
                                Once I figured out to eliminate the two ends and just use the corners, I generated a phrase that seemed plausible, though I hadn't heard it before - and it proved correct. The closest American phrase I think would be "on the mend" - as in after an accident. Glad I had the mechanism all along.

                                  I love educating the world about Aussie slang!
