Don't just do something, stand there! (and think)
> No self respecting American male would ever say that.
I'll have to assume that "self-respecting" is the key point; I picked that phrase up in Wooster, Ohio [maps.google.com], around 6:30 in the morning, while waiting for the drive-through liquor store to open. (The owner was nice enough to open early for us, so by 7:00, we were well on our way to drunkeness...)
Ah, the daze of my youth...

You won't trust me for the next 6 years? :)

|Because you never learned to count backwards! Its # 61! |
I hope you were not responding to my question :), for the following reasons:
1. I was quoting grandpa, everything is in Italic.
2. I perfectly know how to count backwards, I started the thread :)
But, still want to hear from grandpa.

A little more serious this one, but good for keeping spirits up during seemingly endless problems :)
#57 new and improved

Since the expression need not be applicable, here's my all time favorite expression (implied chiasmus)-
#49 He grounds the warship he walks on.
For the non-native, it's a play on "he worships the ground 'she' walks on.
Clever? It's a ten.
Whip out your rhetoric books. ; )
# 48....It's maybe an 8.
If he GROUNDS the warship he walks upon, he is a poor sailor indeed...KF
|But, still want to hear from grandpa. |
In my youth, the phrase was 'Don't trust anyone over 30'. It served us well, I think. Nowadays, most people (not all) that I've met, under the age of 30, are irresponsible and untrustworthy. More than anything, however, the phrase really says to just hang with people your own age, IMO. (As I sit here writing this, listening to a woman my own age blabber away, I long for a different perspective.)
-- the phrase really says to just hang with people your own age --
which makes post 2 more, but not related to age as much ..

43 - Why can't we all just get along
that "s***'s and giggles" expression is also sometimes spoken as "s***'s and grins"
its north american wide and not used by me
This is good in practice but will never work in theory.
(something like that)
