    Confused [JP] Help with expression 「しかしもかかしもない」

    Hello, this phrase has me stumped. Usually I can at least figure out the word roots, but here I'm not really sure- is it something about a prostitute and a scarecrow? o.o

    Based on the context of the page, it's probably something like "Stop making excuses!"

    I've also seen it written 「しかしも案山子もない」, if that helps.

    Thanks very much!

    しかし=but
    カカシ=scarecrow

    しかしもかかしもない
    Meaning: No buts. Stop complaining.

    しかしもへちまもない
    しかしもへったくれもない
    しかしもクソもない
