Clich=C3=A9s vs. idioms

What is the most representative cliche ?

What is an example of something that's
    --  both a cliche and a slang (term) ?
    --  both a cliche and a proverb ?

i'm checking out this [Dictionary of Cliches]=20
  -- on the back cover:  "the largest of its kind"

Why doesn't it contain these?
    ---  Forty acres and a mule
    ---  As Long as the Grass Shall Grow ...
    ---  win-win situation ...
    ---  by any means necessary
