    My uncle was famous for using cliches..Some of my favorites he used to always tell me was "birds of a feather flock together" "yesterdays history and tomorrows a mystery" "a stranger is just a friend you haven't met" and my favorite one as a recovering alcoholic was "you don't go to a chicken ranch to buy a kiss just like you don't go to a bar to drink a coke".He used to tell me this cause I quit drinking but I still went to the bar..What are some of your favorite cliches??

    Don't fix what works. If it ain't broke leave it along.

    He who hesitates masturbates. A tip I learned while barhopping as a youngster.

    Remember, The Titanic was built by experts, the Ark by an amateur.

    You couldn't hit the broad side of a barn

    American as apple pie.

    Nip it in the bud.

    Caught between a rock and a hard place.

    Blood is thicker than water.

    Am I talking to a brick wall.

    An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

    Can't tell his ass from a hole in the ground.

    Beat around the bush.

    A chip off the old block.

    Not for all the tea in China.

    An apple never falls far from the tree.

    The apple of his eye.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

    Every dog has his day.

    No use crying over spilt milk.

    In the doghouse.

    As clear as mud.

    Just fell off the turnip truck.

    Don't let any grass grow under your feet.

    Knock on wood.

    Nutty as a fruitcake.

    Everything's coming up roses.

    Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

    Ashes to ashes dust to dust.

    Between a rock and a hard place.

    Come hell or high water.

    As hot as hell.

    Once in a blue moon.

    Cool as a cucumber.

    As poor as dirt.

    Here's mud in your eye.

    Bite the dust.

    Our neck of the woods.

    If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    If it's not one thing it's another.

    Hit pay dirt.

    Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    Grow like a weed.

    Either you sink or you swim.

    Bit off more than you can chew.

    The cream of the crop.

    Rough as a cob.

    Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

    Don't count your chickens before they hatch.

    Full of piss and vinegar.

    Money doesn't grow on trees.

    Save it for a rainy day.

    Stop and smell the roses.

    Don't that just butter your grits.

    The grass is always greener on the other side.

    Dry as a bone.

    Stubborn as a mule.

    That's water under the bridge.

    A stick in the mud.

    Loose as a goose.

    They're like two peas in a pod

    What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Tastes like chicken.:wink:

    Sick as a dog.

    He can't see the forest for the trees.

    If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, it must be a duck.

    Is that a banana in your pocket. :smile2::smile2:

    Made in the shade.

    Spill the beans.

    You can't squeeze blood out of a turnip.

    A thorn in my side.

    Useless as tits on bull. :crazy:

    My dad used to say that my uncle "could fall in a bucket of crap and come out smelling like a rose".
