WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CATCH PHRASE?

I think mine is "It's all good." And, really, it's not all good, is it? Still, I like the positiveness of the phrase even if it isn't all that realistic.

Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better! A funny phrase from my childhood that has just stuck.

I like it when someone is asked how they are doing, and they respond, "fair to middlin'", that makes me smile.

I also like it when the people who yell "you don't know me, you don't know me" when being booed by the audience on a sleazy daytime talk show.

If someone wants me to settle, or take sides, in an argument with which I would prefer not to be involved, I like to say "my name's Bennett and I aint in it."

And, I like how my mom sort of butchers modern catch phrases. When people began saying "step off", she tried to keep with the times, but it translated in her head and out of her mouth to "jump back"...it was really cute.

I also like the saying, 'they talk for a while and in the end go away with a smile'

I had an aunt who always said "As people get older, they become more so". Took me a long time to understand that, but now I know it is true, and I've borrowed it a lot. Thanks, Aunt Harriet.

1. 'Yes dear.'

My late grandmother would employ this phrase a dozen different ways to my grandfather. It could be sarcastic, teasing, tired, playful or pointed - but it was always used to 'pit his gas at a peep'.

2. 'Pit his/her/their gas at a peep'. ('Pit' = Put, 'peep' = small amount)

Saying or doing something to deflate a pompous or ridiculous person or idea. Think turning down the gas on a stove or oven from it's highest to lowest setting.

If someone is trying to con me or trick me into something -- I say "I was born at night, but it wasn't LAST night".

When ever anyone greets me by saying, "What's up?" my response is always, "anything over your head is up." My brother, to express surprise says, "Well kiss my tulips and call me Missy." I don't know why he says that but since he's meaner then me I don't question him about it.

"Well kiss my tulips and call me Missy."

My version of that is, "Well, slap me silly and call me Erma."

In the US "Don't even think about it!"

in France "en principe" a kind of disclaimer for whatever follows

We had a relative with very limited mental abilities and emotional problems as a young girl. She would sometimes pitch hissy-fits and break things, but when an adult asked her what happened, she would look down, feign innocence, and say, "No asser me, I ain't know." (Trans. "Don't ask me!") That has become a family response when trying to avoid blame.

I also like two of Flip Wilson's Geraldine's catchphrases: "What you see is what you get." (Adopted by computer geeks as WYSIWYG), and "The Devil made me do it!" This last one is for when "No asser me - I ain't know" doesn't work.

My Mom used to yell, "Come on, lady - s*it or get off the pot" at people when she was driving. It always cracked me up.

My former boss was always telling me "No good deed goes unpunished."

When an error is made, I always try to put it in perspective by saying "The sun will still come up in the morning." or "No souls were lost."

A former co-worker would say at the end of the day, "Well stick me with a fork, I'm done."

That was a perfect end to this thread. But I'm hoping there'll be many more...

Dog nab it!

From your lips to God's ears (or online - from your fingers to God's eyes)

Oh, yeah, another red-letter day in the Bailey household! (I use that all the time, from It's A Wonderful Life)
