When being a little too loud or unruly mom would say: "quit being so rambunkious" or "stop with all the shananiguns".

Kids doing something stupid we always said, " quit being a dork".

When faced with the likelihood that someone was telling a tall tail on him, my grandpa would say, "You stepped in what?!"
Still my favorite go-to response when facing similar perfunctory, and disingenuous malfeasant utterances.
(This very statement would have surely prompted my grandpa's famous response.)

Fiddlesticks was the go to word when something went wrong .

My dad always said if your dumb enough to get into trouble be smart enough to figure how to get out of of it.

Knew an older lady who if she didn't want you to know what she paid for something she would say, "It cost me a dollar three eighty".

From Laurel & Hardy: "Put that in your pipe and smoke it!"

"a horse a piece "

"Wish in one hand , Shite in the other"

both my grandmothers called it the "Boob Tube"

"burning day light"

"burning the midnight oil"

"make hay while the sun shines"

"beats a sharp stick in the eye"

" slick as snot" or slick as snot on a door knob"

"youbetcha"

"clear as mud"

" a fish in the hand" or " a fish in the hand is worth 2 on the line".

"teach a man to fish" or "give a man a fish" from "give a man a fish , feed him for a day, Teach a man to fish , feed him for a lifetime."

So slow, he has to speed up to stop.
So slow, we had to set stakes to see if he was moving.
So ugly when she cries, the tears run down the back of her head.
So buck-toothed, he can eat peanuts out of a pop bottle.
So ugly, he has to sneak up on a glass of water.
So ugly, when he was little they had to tie a pork chop around his neck so the dog would play with him.
So dumb, he thought manual labor was a Mexican.
