In the mid 60's, on the wall above one of the few urinals in the gents of "The Rugby" (Hull), spiritual home of Ian "Jock" Manuel, was inscribed
       "There are no tramcars in Afghanistan"
I didn't know what this meant then. I know it even less now.

Come to think of it, she was beyond irate. If I remember correctly, it took her about four days to calm down. I don't recall any of the words she had to say, but I know the language was very colourful. Never thought she was that strong. Who'd a thunk a 5'6" gal could pick up a kitchen table and THROW it like that?

If you ever get in this situation, the wrong thing to say is, "Hi, honey, what's for supper."

Went out for a loaf of bread and didn't come back for about four months. My significant other was completely unreasonable about that at the time. It was 38 years ago, and she really got mad about the whole thing. I have come to understand over the ensuing years that I should have left a detailed note.

1. Not the brightest bulb in the pack

Four from a verbal-acrobatics friend of mine who writes a very funny column in a national motorcycle magazine in Oz:

2. S/he's a legend in his/her own lunchtime

3. Cluin said: "It's just a half of an eighth of a sixteenth of an inch off"

Aussie equivalent = A *poofteenth off

* I don't think it is at all related except for the verbal/word-sound humour value but a "poofter" is a homosexual man in Oz.

4. He ends his column with "Copulator" = cop you later = catch/see you later, but is playing on words.

5. He also says: If I want your opinion I'll give it to you.

6. From a desk calendar, a quote I found which always reminds me of the manager I worked for at the time:

Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn't have to do it himself.

(It's one of the few sayings I don't make gender-non-specific, because I am referring to that manager who was a man)

7. Grow up, wake up & shut up!

I made that one up in high school and wrote it on the blackboard when the class was acting up. The teacher actually said it was clever when she came into the room. A compliment from a teacher. Wow!

8. My hubby describes big, wobbly breasts - not that he looks at women's breasts of course - as "Like two puppies fighting in a sack"

9. From a Murphy's Law poster:

When in doubt, mumble.
When in trouble, delegate.

10. From an old music hall song:

"It's the same the whole world over.
It's the poor that gets the blame.
It's the rich that gets the pleasure.
Ain't it all a bleeding shame?"


Freda, I like that one about the germs screaming

Remarks in foreign languages ( other than one the caller may know) are always good for telemarketers and others who don't know your voice and you would rather not talk to.

My current favorite is "Kein Anschluss unter dieser Nummer"--which actually, used to be on German telephones for "wrong number". (means literally "no connection under this number")

Wolfgang---do they still use it?

Also, my father had a whole raft of good sayings, some of which I use, including lots of variations of Murphy's Law e.g. "If anything can go wrong it will" , "Life is basically unfair"
etc.

Another favorite of his I really like is "I'm even-tempered---always mad".

Great thread.

             —The Young Immigrants by Ring Lardner

Back in the Fifties and Sixties, I had a friend who wasn't a singer himself (essentially tone-deaf), but he loved folk music His living room was available just about every weekend for songfests, and we had some great ones there. Anyway, he was of the Jewish persuasion, and he had a couple of quotes written in Hebrew, framed and hung on his living room wall. One evening I asked him what they said, and he translated them for me.
If I am not for myself, then who am I?
If I am only for myself, then what am I?
If not now, when?
                                     —Rabbi Hillel

Before he died, Rabbi Zusya of Hanipal said, "In the world to come, they will not ask me, 'Why were you not Moses?' They will ask me, 'Why were you not Zusya?'"
