Funny quips


Recommended Posts

“Meaner than a gar”

”tougher than a pine knot”

I should probably apologize because all of those earlier were very crude. Working where I do, you are around some rough characters a lot. The sayings or “quips” are normally a reflection of the people that told them.  I can’t say any are original to me but I have always liked one liners and try to remember what I hear. 

my Grandma would say “one side or a leg off” when you got in the way as a little kid. Not in a mean way but you got the point.

Dad would say before cultivating " careful or you will straighten my rows"

My uncle always said “you get more corn in a crooked row”. Grandpa was known to plant very straight rows, Uncle......not so much
