    Sayings...

    The saying "full of piss and vinegar" has been used in reference to me at my old work before. When I asked what it means I was told it means being full of energy. Just looked it up on Google and found it also means being mischief. That could also be used to refer to me. Anyway...

    Just wondering if anyone else has sayings that others may not have heard of.

    Is "usually in the more southern states" a saying? What does it mean? Do you mean that sayings are usually more prominent in the more "southern" states? I'm being serious. Not exactly sure what you mean by your post.

    Well sayings originated in the rural regions of America, and more rural regions are in the South.

    "Happy as two peas in a pod" is one. I never knew peas could be happy but, I guess they are

    I was looking more for sayings rather than quotes. Slight difference. Nice quotes though.

    About playing pool: "If in doubt, give it a clout". I always thought that was kind of funny

    I like "That's like taking a flying **** at a rolling doughnut" to describe a difficult task.

    I say...

    "Sweet **** of Christ" just came out of my mouth one day, and now has stuck between friends. Kind of takes place of Holy **** or another exclamatory phrase.
