What sayings do you use?

Every so often I hear funny sayings and am just wondering how many out there I haven't heard. For example, my dad's friend who stands almost 7 feet tall will say, "well chop my legs off and call me shorty," when he hears something suprising to him. I've heard, "his/her elevator doesn't go to the top floor," or "sh** fire and save the matches!" What else is out there?

This is a great discussion, although I'm going to have to think about this for a couple minutes because I know so many of these types of sayings! If you're trying to insult someone, there's "He/she ain't the sharpest tool in the shed," and "He/she ain't the brightest crayon in the box." I love those! There are also some referring to when you have to leave such as, "Make like a banana and split," and "Make like a tree and leaf." Oh, and my favorite refers to lefties of which I am one of those special people. (LOL) I heard this from my dad. He refers to lefties as "the only ones in their right minds." Get it? (If not, I guess I can explain.) In conclusion, let me tell you my favorite saying of all time, at least at the moment until I hear a better one: "Man who run behind car get exhausted; man who run in front of car get tired." What do you think? Awesome discussion!

Thank you! You made me think of a couple others..Sharp as a basketball and a sandwhich short of a picnic. And yes, I do get the lefty one.. Very cute! I'll have to share it with my little sister. She happens to be a lefty and I'm sure she'll agree with that saying.

Thanks, Green! I hadn't heard either of those sayings you shared. Those are hilarious! Let me know what your little sister thinks. Since my dad, his dad (my grandpa), his brother (my uncle), and me are lefties, it's something we all can share. :)

Hahah after saying grace at dinner my dad says "Brother John shot the rooster and killed the hen!" Lol to this day I don't really get it, but it still makes me laugh every time I hear it!

Well I don't really get that one either. You should ask him what it means and let me know. Or maybe someone here willknow. It is quite amusing though.
