Do you remember any funny sayings? Maybe ones that you hadn't heard before that just stuck you as really funny?? Maybe it's something your grandparents or parents used to say, or in my case it would more likely have been one of my uncles. They were always coming up with old country sayings that I had never heard....and most of them I can repeat. Something like this is what I'm talking about...

That’s about as useful as a trap door on a canoe!

Build a bridge, and get over it!

Life's hard. Get a helmet.

Well, don’t you look prettier than a glob of butter melting on a stack of wheat cakes!

OK, some of these are pretty silly and some very old but somehow the older they get the funnier they seem. tongue Do you have one or a few to share?

The one I remember from my uncles when I was trying to put something away one day was...

"You can't stuff a 7# rooster in a quart jar!" HUH? smilewinkgrin tongue

What sayings or old phrases make you laugh?(remember this is a family site smilewinkgrin )

My Mom recently shared the following with me. Some are kind of funny...more than anything food for thought! Enjoy!

Accept that some days you're the pigeon;
And some days you're the statue.

Always keep your words soft and sweet;
Just in case you have to eat them.

Drive carefully
It's not only cars that can be Recalled" by their maker.

If you can't be kind,
At least have the decency to be vague.

If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again,
It was probably worth it.

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to be kind to others.

Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time,
Because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

Nobody cares if you can't dance well.
Just get up and dance.

The second mouse gets the cheese.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull.
Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

"Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes, that way you will be a mile away and you have their shoes" That one is so goofy it's funny, I don't remember where I heard it though.
How about one for all of us Mom's "When you break your leg, don't come running to me!"

I like long walks, especially when taken by people that annoy me.

In my day as a teenager and into my very early twenties, the word "decent" was popular As and example " hey that is a "decent" set of mags on your car! Or Hey that is a "decent" job. One of my favorites, that use to drive us all crazy that a friend of mine use to say all the time, was " Decent wouldn't be Decent if it wasn't Decent" Now what sense does that make?
