How many sayings can you recall from your childhood?

Back in the day there was, "Heavens to Murgatroyd".
My oldest son stop by one day with a used car he had bought. I said something to him about driving a Jalopy. He said, "What the heck is a Jalopy?"
Some of the ones I remember:
"Carbon Copy"
"Hung out to dry"
"Straighten up and fly right"
"You sound like a broken record"
"A fine kettle of fish"
"I'll be a monkey's uncle"
"It's your nickel"
"See ya later, alligator"
"After while, crocodile"
Being accused of being a "Knucklehead", "Nincompoop", or a "Pill"


The world is fighting Islamic terrorism, starvation, and disease. But, the left is fighting for men able to pee in the ladies room!

Someone almost posted it above. I always heard it: Better never than late.

And: Dreckly.

A man called me a week or so ago, asked if I had something, told him I did. He said, I'll send her up dreckly. First I'd heard anyone say that for ages.

Six ways from Sunday
Full of (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) and vinegar

Some lost/unneccessary phrases:

Dial the phone number.

The phone cord wont reach over here.

Stop so I can use the pay phone.

Here's 2 dollars. Go get me a gallon of gas and a pack of Salems.

Watch for spiders b4 you sit down on the outhouse seat.

That is a nice rifle Bubba's got hanging in his truck gun rack in the high school parking lot.

Cant wait to go to the drive in movie tonight.

Go look that up in the encyclopedia.


Thank God For Your Blessings!
