colloquialisms, from other places, times, other races, and mis-interpretations of language can all be hilarious.
e.g.:
"Junk in da Trunk"...nice ass
"Sky Pilot"... 1870's term for minister
"Dirt Nap" ...'30s for dead
"Buzzworm" Cowboy talk for rattlesnake
"Sleeping Policeman" Aussie for speed bump
"Hickory Dickery"...Cockney for clock>dial> face

What are some faves. Do you use them often?

What a great thread! Rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic-just like the atheist in his coffin,all dressed up with nowhere to go-let me think of some of my other faves-the Bears just sucked it bigtime,so the first glass of Chardannay is making me a little slow.Plus that,I'm cooking country ribs for dinner.I'll be back.

I never told people my Mom did jail time, I told them she was a "Guest of the State."
Also, my dad called his 2 tours of Viet Nam "Touring the Orient"

Or, how 'bout...

What's the bottom line.

Reality check.

Cut to the chase.

Relationship Manager (these are the A-holes who get to 'splain to you why the interest rate on your credit card was raised to 99% even though you've never been late or missed a payment. FYI, all CC's are now issued with the clause that the default rate will apply if upon review, they feel you may potentially have issues by with being overextended)

...to really make you puke!

I'm so thirsty I could suck the guts out of a low flying emu! - to be thirsty

I'm outta here like a robbers dog - to leave quickly

I'm flat out like a lizard drinking - to be busy (I think?)

Busy as a one-armed paper hanger.

Busy as a one-legged man in a butt kicking contest.

'Widjadidja' As in: "You remembered to bring the plunger widjadidja?"

Also "Ape Drape," "Hockey Hair" ('cause so many NHL players suffer from it),or "Business up front, Party in the back."

"Stadium Steak" - a hotdog


Also "Tube Steak." Of course "Hot Dog" is based on the rumour that dog meat was used in the Franks served in the Polo Grounds in NYC. And the use of the name "Frankfurter" or "Weiner" depends on whether you think they were invented in Frankfurt or Vienna (Wien in German).

"Rice Rocket" - a fast, little Japanese car


Also used for a fast Japanese Motorcycle, along with "Crotch Rocket." How about "Milwaukee Vibrator" for a Harley, especially a Sportster.
