    I don't know how common this saying is, but I know an old timer that is really into watching sports. He frequently says, "He couldn't hit a bulls ass with a handful of peas!" I laugh every time he says it, then wonder what his childhood was like.

    His childhood was probably exciting, if he had a handful of peas and a good aim.

    I'm going to nudge this thread just a bit to the left.
    I love flirtation lines, especially when I make them up myself (and am too shy to use them).

    I was watching an animated conversation, full of smiles, but a bit too far away to hear it. How to break in?

    "I caught this smile, floating by. I think it's yours. Can I keep it?"

    Corny, yeah. But remember - I'm 80 y.o. It's easier to get away with stuff like that.

    Growing up, my Dad was notorious for saying...

    -What's that got to do with the price of tea in China?
    -If it was a snake it would've bit you.
    -Can't never could do anything. (this was of course usually said right after one of my sisters and/or I was whining about "I cant do it..."). :p

    My all time favorite will always be my Granny's though...

    -That ain't gonna get a baby no shoes! :D

    Of course, I wouldn't target the current administration with this observation, nor would I exclude it - or any administration.

    I'm a big fan of the Dr Laura show and one of her callers said her grandpa often said "I'll let you whittle and spit on that" meaning I'll let you mull things over a bit. After living in the South for going on 7 years I realized that I've begun using this phrase quite a bit.

    Less is more. Unless you're standing next to the one with more. Then less just looks pathetic.

    My favorite are from Professor Malaprop:

    "You buttered your bread, now lie in it"
    "We must learn to put principle aside, and do what is right!"
    "She is even more beautiful when you meet her, than she is in person"
    "There are no second debuts in life"
    "We could learn from the wisdom of Earl Carlson who, as the old saying goes, goes without saying"

    Running will make you live longer. But you'll spend THAT time running.

    I like Malapropisms. Here's one of mine:

    "A malapropism is when someone starts to read books on entomology, because they're interested in the origins of birds."

    Did you hear Julie Andrews will no longer use cheap lipstick? Apparently it crumbles and makes her breath smell. She said, "The super color fragile lipstick gives me halitosis."
