That old chestnut

I have a small collections of things people have said about old chestnuts:

That old embarrassing chestnut
The chestnut that broke the camel’s back
There’s a pub called The Old Chestnut
My old chestnut, that old nag.

What do they mean? I don’t really know, but I like thinking about chestnuts in this cold and rainy weather!
