Some are very memorable. Did I do that? Where’s the Beef? No Soup For You!!! You shall not pass. We’ve been using the last two lately. They are stuck in my head. Any more you can think of?

I can think of one, and that is the one that says, "What goes around comes around". I use that one a lot. There is another one I can think of, and that is "Why don't you take a picture, as it will last longer".

@Susan2015 It really is true though, that if you do good for others you will get back good in return. It also works the other way too.

Two of my favorite: It is what it is. He/she puts the ugh in ugly. ( I don't see it as about what someone looks like, but more about what people act like.)

"Talk to the hand," was a big one for a while. And how about, "Drinking the Koolaid"?

Funny about the "koolaid" phrase. I used it the other day and they had no idea what it meant, I gave them a lesson on history and religious "nuts."

@Ruby3881 Exactly, so they do not understand the "koolaid" comment. And then, there is the time I say "I am not a Pollyanna." No one will understand that if they aren't 50ish or older. LOL

@vandana7 You use it when you are thinking of a new idea or doing something different. You throw the suggestion out there to see what people think of it.

I'm not very good at these, since I haven't watched television in about 10 years, but one of the last ones I did see was; "Where's the beef?"
