    An old neighbor of mine, whose not all there looked at me once and said "If Cats had wings, we'd all be in trouble"
    It was funny at the time since we were sitting outside the apartment building and there were about 10-12 kitty cats there. I still laugh at that every time I think about that. You'd just have to know him for it to be funny...:wink::smile2:

    If someone was working hard, my grandparents always said they were "going at it like they were killing snakes"

    Or somebody was "big enough to go bear hunting with a stick"

    My guys at work used to say "the squeaky wheel gets the grease" till I countered with the Japanese version - "the nail that sticks up gets hammered down":smile2:

    Dad used to say he'd "rather be in Hell with his back broke" than be somewhere he didn't like :smile2:

    And I never did figure out how Hogan's goat got so screwed up or how somebody got to be "more screwed up than Hogan's goat"

    Heres one we usually say when someone starts singing that can't,

    " boy I always used to wish I could sing but now I wish you could:smile2:"

    Heres another one we say when one of our buddies says he has a head ache,

    " If I had a head like that and it didn't hurt I'd see a doctor:smile2:.

    In my first job as a teenager, my boss used to tell me to do something & add on at the end...."Hurry up now & take yer time" (Must be the Irish accent)

    Upon talking to a woman in her 50's trying to chat him up, (he in his 20's), a friend of mine said "It's the first time in my life I've ever seen MUTTON dressed as MUTTON!!"

    "Never trouble TROUBLE until TROUBLE troubles YOU!!"

    "If brains was a disease, he'd be the healthiest guy in town!!"
