Hmmm,

My late FIL sayings:
"You got the same pants to get happy in"
"You wouldn't be happy if you were hung with a new rope"
"Colder than a witch's tit"
"You don't have the sense God gave a piss-ant"
"Sweating like a whore in church"

Sayings of my Dad
"Best thing since sliced bread"
"Going to hell in a hand basket"
"She looks like she could domino at any minute" (his way of delicately saying a really pregnant woman could deliver at anytime)

Sayings I heard from my friends:

"So and So moved out to BFE" (butt effin Egypt ) ... Somehow Egypt was as far as their imaginations could go!
"Dumber than a box of hair"

Now that I think of it, my father:
'I'd rather owe it to you than cheat you out of it.'

A former work colleague used to refer to FGOs - 'effing growth opportunities'.

"Blowing smoke up your ass"
First of all, who tha? What tha? Whyyy??? How???
I mean, really think about the scenario for a second....


Eta:
One of the funniest (and most original) I've ever heard was my friend telling someone he hadn't seen in a long time, "I havent seen you since you were knee-high to a tampon!"

I've lived in the South and have heard some Mark Twainisms but honey, that one was in it's own league.

My mom would say: "Well, for Pete's sake!"

Who's Pete?

We always said, "For the love of Pete!"

Of course this was to replace God; wasn't as blasphemous to say Pete in place of.

Then one of our besties married a Pete and we all seriously asked, "What do you say now?! You can't say for the love of Pete, because he answers right - like 'what are you talking about honey'?!"

I don't remember what she said, more memorable was her priest PUKING on the short walk from rectory to church for rehearsal that night.

Sayings my mom said when I was a kid

"I've had more on my ass", used when we were milking a small injury, she never would have said it if we were seriously hurt

"Fly with the crows, you get shot with the crows" meaning watch who you hang out with

"The mouth can say anything" I should have listened to this one better,

"Honest to a fault"

"Sell ice cream to an eskimo"

"Don't go away mad just go away"

"She's got an ass as big as a tame bee"

"Don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out"

"You move so slow you'll be late for your own funeral"

I say some of these sayings to my kids, they really like it when I tell them I've had more on my ass, they respond with yes we know grandma

"Christ on a cracker" (no idea where that's from)
"gave a beretta a blow job" (ex is firefighter paramedic...their suicide description )
"she needs to be c$&t punted" from that amazing college sorority email that went around. Fucking epic. And I know a few that do.

I'm going to debunk/explain these, since people have asked:

wannabenormal said:

"knock on wood"

In the days when people believed trees were inhabited by the fae folk (fairies, etc.), it was commonly believed that when someone said an equivalent to, "What's the worst that can happen?" especially with something specific (i.e., "At least it's not raining!"), the faeries would conspire to make the "wish" come true. When people still made all of their furniture out of wood, it was believed that the sprites of the forest came with it. Thus, to prevent the fairies from keeping any ideas in their heads, you would rap very sharply on the closest wood (the fairies that would have heard you the clearest) to knock the ideas out of their heads.

Now, it is simply an expression for good luck.

Sad in AZ said:

Go piss up a rope

I believe the idea here is that, while it might be an impressive trick (particularly if you're using the rope as a measuring device, as people used to do), all you're going to do is get yourself terribly messy in the end, i.e., you're doing something completely pointless and wasteful. Akin to "spitting in the wind."

whatdoto said:

"Well, for Pete's sake!"

'Pete' here is a euphemism/alteration of the word 'pity.' May also reference "Saint Peter" as an alternative to "God" or "Christ."

sisoon said:

'That sounds like ignorance gone to seed.'

When plants mature enough, they begin to seed. Thus, this is in reference to ignorance that has been left to cultivate and grow on its own.

purplejacket4 said:

"Colder than a witch's tit"

In the olden days, 'witches' were colloquial words for women who had either lost children or never had children (the entire human species were jerks, considering their basis of a good woman constituted children), so their teats were not warm from babes. Thus, cold.

"Best thing since sliced bread"

Bread used to be sold in whole loaves, so pre-slicing it was a novel idea. It saved a step at the dinner table, as well as making sure all the slices were approximately the same width.

painpaingoaway said:

'I'm fit to be tied'!

So angry that your only recourse to prevent damage would be to be restrained in a straitjacket.

'Don't cut off your nose to spite your face'

Interesting one here. It is believed that this one comes from the practice of Anglo-Saxon nuns who were about to be invaded by the "rape-happy" Norsemen. In order to keep their chastity, the nuns under St. Anna determined that they would make themselves as ugly and unappealing to the Norse as possible, and many nuns of the order did cut off their noses to make themselves appear hideously malformed.

'I swanny'

My own grandmother used to say "I'll swan to goodness!" In the South, it's used in place of 'swear,' since that's frowned upon. However, it is either a shortened form "s'wan" = "shall warrant," or it is a corruption of the English "I'll swoon," meaning to faint.

'Gonna take a whore's bath'

Under the belief that not smelling like your last patron assisted business, it was a simple scrub with a sponge in a basin and then a load of perfume.

Ok, this made me look up something my dad says.

mox nix: From the German phrase, "Es macht nichts!" Often used by U.S. servicemen to mean "It doesn't matter" or "It's not important."

He also uses some Yiddish words...including cussing. Not because we're Jewish, but because my grandma grew up in a Jewish neighborhood and passed down what she picked up to my dad.

BFE= bum f*ck Egypt.
Funny, one time I was trying to remember the name of the town MIL had moved to and couldn't. So I just told my friend, "It's in the middle of BFE."

"Oh! You mean Boykins!"

Yup, she knew the town.

From my Old Man:

"Ain't got sense God gave a goose"

"Crazier than a runned-over dog"

"God Almighty Knows!" (substitute for the GD bomb when little ones are present)

(when something tastes good) "That'll make your tongue slap your brains out!"

"Don't cut off your nose to spite your face"

"Son, if you ask 10 women for sex, you might get turned down 9 times" (yeah, I know - believe it or not there's no indication he's ever been a WH).

And many more that don't come to mind at the moment.

This is a fun thread!

Oh, I like the way this thread is going.

Here are some of my favorites from my daddy.

"If you want sympathy, you can find it in the dictionary between shit and syphilis."

"Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, did you enjoy the play?" (usually said when someone was overlooking something rather significant or important)

"Busier than a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs."

"Slower than a pregnant nun on her way to confession."

"Busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest."

"That fella is about a half bubble off plumb."

"Not the sharpest knife in the drawer."

"His elevator don't go up to the top floor."

And my very, very favorite, when his boss left a note that the night shift was now responsible for yet another duty, "Would you like me to shove a broom up my ass and sweep the floor while I'm doing everything else?"

"That smells so bad it would knock a buzzard off a sh!t wagon"

After a stinky bathroom session my dad would spray air freshener. My Mom was usually the unsuspecting victim. She used to say "it smells like someone pooped in a rose bush"
