What's your favorite saying?

Mine is BITE ME when someone pisses me off.

Mine seems to be the term  'Also as well . . .' after somebody has finished talking.

'B*gger me gently/senseless' (as an exclaimation of surprise, not as a literal...!!) is one of the rare 'clean' ones I use frequently (and even then I had to censor it here...!!)

Another one in common usage is 'He's got a face like a smacked arse', which describes po-faced individuals perfectly (of which there are plenty in the office, including our beloved Chief Exec., but I haven't actually said that to him...!!)

The undisputed champs of this lark are the Australians...hopefully there'll be a few along shortly...!

Ha ha! I use the second expression a lot, Paul. Funny as heck. I don't use the first expression in case somebody decides it's an invitation.  ;D

When I'm hungry:  I'm so hungry I could eat the @rse out of a rag doll.

When I'm thirsty:   I'm as dry as a dead dingo.

When asked if I'm busy:   Like a lizard drinking.

When I don't want to do something:  I'd rather stick a needle in my eye.

I would say that Howard is "as toey as a roman sandal".

When something or someone moves quickly:  "like a rat up a rope" or "off like a bride's nightie" (my Uncle's favourite saying. :\'(

Well I am an Aussie! ;)

My neighbour, Victor who was born and bred in Mount Isa (a mining city) has some wonderful sayings.  His best mate, Sean aka Spot,  has a Harley that Victor refers to as "the cattle dog" because it likes to go for a run but always comes home on the back of the ute.   ;D

I love that saying.  We also say "he/she's got a head like a sucked mango seed" ;D
What about "a mouth like a cat's bum".

Somebody that is really drunk is "as full as a state school hat rack" or "as full as a goog".

Somebody with buck teeth "could eat watermelon through a picket fence". ;D

I like "Wicked." I say it when I think something is good or bad. I also say, "What a man/babe X 2" and "I don't like phones." from the mobile ringtone adverts. That must actually be from Little Britain. My mum likes the saying "What a cuffufle (sp?)" from the TV series.

What does that mean, Fuss? I've heard the saying before but have no idea where it come from.

Well, my best guess is that a cigar could be given as a minor sort of prize for getting something right.

Therefore if you do NOT get something right : No cigar !  :)

Unless someone has a better explanation  :)
