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.

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!

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.)

"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.

Dad still threatens to "brain ya" and tells you he didnt feel a thing when you hurt yourself.
I dont think i heard anyone mention "get me another beer" follow by "you know i count those"...I think the first time i heard that i was 12...
Dad let us cus but an f bomb was a little much so we turned to fricken...
Wish in one hand, tihs in the other and tell me which one fills up first..
Your mother
Dude. I still find myself calling people dude...and just saying dude as a general reaction to something shocking.
Put yer seat belt on!
Every body part. was follow by "bone" at one time. My arm bone! My leg bone!
If i had a dime for every time i heard you say that...
Cool yer jets
Hold yer horses
"Whatever" dad hated that coming outta your mouth worse than the f bomb.
Now that i think about it i cant mention half the sayings i grew up with...
Im 39 and had 5 uncles just on dads side, the oldest just died in his early 70s. My wise cracks and phrases are vast.
Us kids pretty much picked up our lingo from our roots. We were a tight knit family.

That's all we did.....every night. Didn't want to go home, might miss something! Seems pretty dorky nowdays....but, not much else to do! We had a plsce we would go out drag racing every chance we got. Cops would come, and we'd scatter five different directions. Don't remember anyone getting caught! Fast cars were pretty important back then!

Been a while since I seen anyone
"Just going in circles"..
or
"Painting them selves into a corner".....
Still see a lot of
"Walk Offs"
just don't here anyone call them that.
Haven't heard anyone but myself call anyone..
"Numb Nuts" for sometime either

I got a long list have always been good and name calling and labels. Learned from my old man..
Kids do use some now I don't know though.

Same here....we had a spot on interstate 93 that was 1/4 mile....all the Kids at The burger joint would gather on the Ash street Bridge and watch us Drag race on the highway below. Of course back in 1975 there wasn’t much traffic ....we did all our racing at night. Then there was grudge night racing @ New England Dragway 40 minutes away....and for 2.00 ...you could race anyone you wanted to...and get Time tickets ....we lived up there !! Drop the headers and bolt on the slicks...drive it up..and drive it home.

We would "cruise" Main in downtown Miami, OK. Then it got to the point that the police started cracking down on it and writing tickets for every little infraction they could find... And a few they made up when they couldn't find any... It died out not long after.
