100 - "Called on the carpet"

For some reason, this expression left some kind of impression on me.

You might probably know it but the meaning is 'being rebuked or closely questioned by a person in authority',

What are your favourite expressions? Anybody, 99?

96. "[Poops] & giggles," as in, "We're heading out for some [poops] & giggles."

Picked it up from some Americans, it apparently means going out for an enjoyable time, usually involving alcohol. Please correct if wrong.

If you stand in a pile of $hit long enough, you won't notice the smell.

Invaluable advice that has many interpretations.

Some people; the only thing they are good for, it to turn food into $hit.

I believe Paris Hilton would fall under this category.

Now for the purposes of reaching zero (zero?), please continue with 83.

Expressions, quotes, advices, proverbs, poems, ...
(sorry I don't see anyway else we can get all 100)

83. Anyone?

Lilliabeth, now that I've gotten the tears outta my eyes and have managed to stop laughing, I have to ask seriously: I chant that over a server by the light of a full moon to make the incantation work, correct?

In the proverb category, the local Belize (in Central America) Kriol version of "back-scratching:"

82. Han[d] wash han, an[d] two han wash face.

I suppose a version we can all understand would go like, "Link to me, I'll link to you; together we can make a link ring!"

You'll also need a couple of racoon heads and four hairs from the head of a UNIX programmer.

And here is another quote:

78. You get what you pay for!
I learned this over many years from trying everything from $10 a year web hosts, to $12 a month web hosts, and I think that this saying is very important when it comes to buying hosting plans for your website.

77. If you want success, you have to EARN it. If you want trust, you have to EARN it. If you want loyalty, you have to EARN it.

I can provide the coon heads.. the rascals come by every night. You're on your own with the geek hairs.

75. Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.
