Know any weird/funny colloquialisms?

I was watching a car TV show the other day, and the test driver said "This car can stop on a dime and give you 9 cents change."

My DH has a ton, but mostly bc he grew up in East TN mountains. The one that comes to mind now is:

If a frog didn't want to bump its butt on the rocks, he'd grow wings.

A non-pc one:

If my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle.

My FIL always says 'It's like trying to fit 10 pounds of bologna in a 5 pound bag' and 'If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck..'

Whenever anyone asks DH how he's doing or how his day is (like in a store etc), DH always responds, "I'm blinking and breathing, so it must be a good day."

This just made me think of another one! I have a patient who always says 'I'm better than some, worse than others' any time I ask how he is.

My dad is full of them but my favorite 2 are when someone says they want something. His response is:
1. People in hell want ice water or
2. Want in one hand, shit in the other. See which fills up first

Re: Know any weird/funny colloquialisms?


If you're eating a shit sandwich, you probably ordered it.

(When you're trying to get rid of something/someone but it won't go away).. It's like shit on your shoe, you can scrape and scrape it but it still stinks.

A guy I used to work with would use these constantly... and probably others I'm forgetting. I miss him! I just might email him and ask for a full list of his sayings Chat Icon

my dad said this all the time:
"don't p*** on me and tell me it's raining"



I use a variation of this all the time. "Don't pi$$ in my ear and tell me it's raining."

Don't get your knickers in a knot, is another fave.
