    Does anybody else have any funny or just plain weird sayings that you find yourself saying and wondering why... colloquialisms, analogies, etc...

    maybe it's just me, but i got a bunch from my dad and i really wonder where they came from because i've never heard anybody else say them...

    like...

    He couldn't "hit a bull in the butt with a bass fiddle"...
    That fish is "slippery as snot"...
    It's raining like "pouring pi$$ out of a boot"...

    there are some more that i can't repeat in a public forum with young'uns around, but you get the drift... I mean seriously, who says this stuff...

    And people look at me funny because i call the fridge an "icebox"... am i the only one? inquirying minds want to know...

    BTW... i am soooo bored and i have 2 hours of work left...

    I often refer to metal in the shop as being "harder than a brick bat" which was on of my old boss' sayings.

    I'm sure I have plenty more but Alison would have to point them out since they all sound normal to me. :biggrin:

    Some of these are pretty darned funny coming from me considering that I've lived in So Cal my entire life. I think I'm a closet bumpkin sometimes. :lol:

    It/that's colder than a well diggers a$$. OR
    It's colder than a witch's tit in a brass bra. OR
    It's colder than penguin poop.

    I've been busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest. OR
    busier than a one armed paper hanger.

    He's about as sharp as a pound of wet leather. OR
    He's not the brightest bulb in the box. OR
    He's as smart as a box of rocks.

    That's as slippery (or slick) as snot.

    Happy as a pig in slop.

    He's such a bad shot. He couldn't hit the broad side of a barn if he was standin in it.

    He/she is so ugly, they have to sneak up on a glass of water for a drink.

    I'm sure Traci will come along soon to remind me of other things I say. :oops:

    Although mine are not as HIlarious as those ones, these are the ones I use most...

    *Not the brightest crayon in the box
    *He's a couple cans short of a six pack

    Ones I use like once in a blue moon for when the moment calls for them..

    *He is so stupid he wouldn't know his @$$ from his elbow
    *He is so confused he wouldn't know whether to wind his butt or scratch his watch.

    not sure if there are anymore..most of what comes out my gab are Cujoisums.

    that's one of mine too... only it's "colder than a well-digger's @$$ in the Klondike" and you reminded me of some others...

    dumb as a stump...
    he's about as sharp as a bowling ball...
    he couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat...

    Not where I thought I'd end up
    1) So dumb he'd fall into a barrel of tits and come out sucking his thumb...
    2) Slicker'n snot on a marble -or- slicker'n cow slobber on a butter dish
    3) He's not the sharpest knife in the drawer

    I'm sure I could come up with more but the Vicodins are kicking in.....
