Who said “Sorry doesn’t pay the bulldog”?
I’ve never heard of this expression, and couldn’t find any reference to it. It might, however, refer to the early morning editions of newspapers, called “bulldogs” in the first part of the 20th century. In their rush to get a story to print, reporters would sometimes make mistakes that would have to be corrected in the late afternoon edition, often with an apology from the editor.
