That's Very Funny, A Fly Marrying A Bumblebee
In case there was still any doubt about the existence of phraseology having to do with teaching an individual's grandmother to suck eggs, here is UK Maxim's take on it. This is from an issue I bought in London (not that you can't get UK Maxim in the states), which features a piece proving and disproving various common sayings, or "maxims" (get it?). Overall, a pretty dull, unfunny and ultimately pointless piece that long overstays its welcome. But it does include an actual picture of a grandmother sucking an egg.
