Funny or just downright odd phrases.

I inadvertently put a phrase in one of my threads earlier and after I re-read it, it got me to thinking that probably not many people have ever heard that before. I thought it would be fun to share some phrases that just sound odd that you think maybe haven't been widely heard. This should be especially fun since this is a worldwide forum.

One phrase that I use all the time is "I nearly **** and fell in it" which, translated to normal folk speak, means that I was very surprised.

Another is one that I picked up from my Grandad when I was very young. It was kind of a threat type of phrase that usually resulted in people just looking at you like you had lost your mind:
"If you ain't careful, I'm gonna slap a hairlip on you that will whistle like a 16-penny nail"
I have not the slightest clue what it means but it always made me giggle.

One more is one that I picked up while I was working in prison that is used when someone is telling you about something that they did or said. I still often use the phrase "I ain't mad at you" which actually means that 'I get it and I agree, I would have done/said that too'. Though that explanation isn't terribly clear. Here, I'll try to put it in a conversation.
Person 1: So the guy said my horse was crap and I told him to buzz off.
Person 2: I ain't mad at you.

Ooh, one more from prison life: "You got life f**ked up". I use this when someone who I have no respect for tries to give me orders. Here's an example from when I tried to go back to waiting tables (I quit within minutes after this happened).
Customer: I want my ranch dressing NOW! (after he had already grabbed me by the arm)
Me: Boy, you got life f**ked up. You want it that bad, there's the kitchen. Your legs ain't broke, go get it your own **** self.

Anyway, share some of yours.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

In Finnish, we have a phrase which pretty literally goes "we aren't on rabbit's back" which means that we don't need to hurry. My mom then once said "we aren't on horse's back". I started to laugh and couldn't help but had to mention that I've spent quite many hours in my life horseback.

Quite fun, well-known Finnish phrase is also "piss(ed) off like a little squirrel when a cone froze". I still bet you who speak English don't know it . Like: "When I heard he dates her I was pissed off like a little squirrel when a cone froze."

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

My favorite ones to say are "cuter than a (insert farm animal) (insert random act).

Ex. That boy is cuter than a pig on a seesaw.

"there's something wrong with your gear shift" as in you ain't thinking right.

"I gotta piss more than a 3 d*ck donkey in a beer drinkin contest"

"finer than frogs hair"

"sweatin like a ***** in church"

"harder than a biscut" about how tough someone is or how hard they hit

"aint my first rodeo"

one of my fave's "hotter than (or sweating more) 2 rats screwin in a wool sock"

"tits on a boar hog" when something is useless.

"a few wet pads will do him good" as in he needs more experiance

I could go on and on but it's late and I'm tired of thinking lol.

I don't know, but I just found my new favourite phrase that I will be using from now on.
(Quoting smrobs) That is just "one that I picked up while working in prison".
LMFAO
Yeah, I learned a lot in those days...

One of my origional favorites is
"More dangerous than Chuck Norris with a bb gun"

"awesometasticful" (unofficially my catch phrase type word)

"Son of a monkey"
"Son of a hampster" These of course are replacing the word b*tch in the phrase "Son of a b*tch".

"Sweatin like a French ***** at Sunday Mass"

"I got dis" Meaning I've got your back or I can do something such as
"I can't fix the leaky faucet"
"I got dis"

"SPWEEEEEE" (sounds similar to 'spree") My friends and I say it to exclaim victory.

"Beat that Hot Wheels" I came up with this one, and now all my friends say it.

LOL Knack! You just made me remember more that I use!

- Son of a Monkey's uncle
- Son of a butt monkey
- Screwed seven ways from Sunday
- Craptastic
- Ba$tard A$$hole (I was peeved off at a coworker LMAO)
- Diptard (went to say Dip$h!t and/or ****** and it came out Diptard. Has become a staple of my vocabulary LMAO)

And here's one that made me die laughing the other day... I was talking to my banker and I asked how she was. Her response? "Busier than a 2 peckered billy goat." I laughed so hard I snorted!

Well, this one actually came about because my friend was trying to "dish me some salt" (hey, theres another one) because she was beating me at a race car video game. So after an intense battle, I came out the winner and I yelled at her, "Beat THAT Hot Wheels!" (And yes, I was referencing the hot wheels comercials coined phrase, "Hot Wheels. Beat That.".

Ever since then, it has been used as a challenge to top whatever was said/done by the speaker/do-er.

I still get some folks with that one. The guy that came to hook up my home phone is an old friend from a nearby town that I hadn't seen in years, since before I graduated high school. He was a couple of years older than me though. When I said something that he laughed at, he asked me where I heard that and I simply said "Prison". The look on his face was priceless. He was speechless and looked like he just ran over my favorite dog LOL. It was great.

LOL, these are great you guys. Keep them coming. I was kinda beginning to wonder if this thread was gonna get any responses or not .

I'm sure if I thought about it, I could come up with some more from prison
Bumping your gums = running your mouth
Get Somewhere = you need to leave
Broke-d*ck = old broken down man with no money
Knee high to a tall Indian = Describing something that is short. "I've known you since you were knee high to a tall Indian"
Most of the rest that I got from there are more vulgar than any others posted so I should probably refrain.

One that I picked up at some rodeos and started using some (mainly because nobody else knew what it meant) was
Don't bobble your hooey. That basically means 'don't screw it up'.

The one that I started to use after reading one joke here on HF.com:

"Tie one's reins behind a train" when someone is going to do something that will might turn out uncontrollable. Stems from it that this action will perhaps be as easy to stop as a train using riding methods and checks.

"If I do that now, I'll perhaps tie my reins behind a train".

Since I love my long, thick hair I've also some phrases that I've developed for it or from it:
"It's so freezing cold here that even lice in my hair freeze."
"My hair is so dirty and greasy that you could butter a sandwich on it"
(side note: I don't have lice and I wash my hair daily).

One more funny Finnish one:
"The sky is bucketing down like Esteri's butt". (We tend to replace "butt" with more indecent expression but I don't use it here).

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
