Does the black cat on a fence represent truth? I'm so confused...

"Any great truth can - and eventually will - be expressed as a cliche - a cliche is a sure and certain way to dilute an idea. For instance, my grandmother used to say, 'The black cat is always the last one off the fence.' I have no idea what she meant, but at one time, it was undoubtedly true." 
- Solomon Short (a fictional character of the science fiction author David Gerrold, who wrote the Tribbles episode of Star Trek, and The War Against the Chtorr series of books)
