Simon, take a look at http://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?co ... =10&share=

And http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/grease+palm

Why would you have to bribe S. Holmes to find a murderer? That's what he does for a living.
Simon? rs.
Now I see, grease someone's palm is more used than grease someone's hand and I'd never need to grease Sherlock's palm 'cause it is just his job to find out the murderers.
Thanks for the explanation and I'm sorry for my examples.
