What's up y'all? I know i haven't been around much lately ... no big loss (I mean for you good folks of the soup...not for me!...haha...wanted to be clear on that...miss y'all), but I've got a few minutes and wanted to blog about something ... just nonsense mostly. A good friend of mine from California who works for me here, is always laughing at the expressions I use. Usually, he has no idea what I'm talking about at first, but he gets a kick out of em', so I thought I'd ask the wide range of people here ...ever heard any of these? Today I told him I wanted him busier than a one-armed monkey with two peckers, which is what brought this blog on.
--It's hotter'n a billy goat's ass in a pepper patch.
--It's hotter'n two rabbits screwin' in a wool sack.
--He's windy'sa sack fulla farts (used to describe a blowhard)
--Useless as tits on a bull
--Slicker'n pig snot on a radiator (sometimes used to describe ice...or even a crafty person)
--Wadn't nuthin' tween him an the Lord 'cept a grin (he was completely naked)
--That stink would knock buzzards off a gut wagon.
--Stop goin' round yer ass to get to yer elbow. (doing things the hard way)
--That happened faster'n a knife fight in a phone booth.
--Higher than a Georgia pine (drunk or stoned)
--Madder'n a wet hen in a tote sack
--I swalla'd down my Sun'de(Sunday) throat. (to get ckoked on something)
--I'm doin' finer'n frog's hair ( finer than frog's hair...I'm doing very well)
--Good night a'livin'!! (good grief!!)
Here's a couple my great-grandmother used to say...
--If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.
--Wake up, Caleb, yonder comes a hare with his tail ashakin'
And here's a couple of single words that Joe finds amusing...
--plumb (all the way)...like...The jar was plumb empty.
--tump (tip over and dump)...like...Tump that bucket of water over.
--Law! (Oh My!)
--Caddywompus ( sideways or crooked)
Ok, that's enough of that ...I could go on like this all day. I've got lots. Some of the above aren't as commonly used as others (not anymore, anyway) and certainly not all over the south, but some of these are pretty common where I'm from. Ever heard any...or variations? Have any funny ones to share that might be regional to you?
