Some expressioons are really weird right? Like, "i could murder a cup of tea" and things like that, I just don't get it. What are some other weird expressions you know of?

In Australia we have some REALLY odd sayings! One example is used when we have been really busy and we would say "I've been flat out like a lizard drinking!". Another example which sounds almost crude but means that we are out drinking is "Hitting the piss!" lol. Both are pretty unique to Australians and not necessarily used a lot but they are still somewhat bizarre I guess!

lol. Maybe the "Hitting the piss" one came about from the UK version then? It's more than likely that this is the case!

My mom has several she'll use. Sometimes she'll say something so random and off the wall. Not sure where she gets them from or if she makes them up. One of her favorites is, "My guts are eating me!" She'll use that one if she's really hungry. Not exactly sure where she got it from but I have a feeling it came from her mom. If so, that's where it stops because I never say it.
