Doodling...on 'Stupid Sayings'.

You know what I mean, those sayings you've heard all of your life...



'dumber than a box of rocks'

'a few bricks short of a full load'

'elevator doesn't go all the way to the top floor'

etc.



They fascinate me.

I wonder about them.

I wonder about those who say them

...and those who inspired them.

I wonder who says them more often...

men or women?



I looked on the web and found pages upon pages of these stupid sayings.

Here are some of my favorites...



'doesn't have both oars in the water'


'half a bubble off plumb'


'the porch light is on but nobody's home'


'couldn't drive a nail into a snowbank'


'not the sharpest knife in the drawer'



What about you?

Which of these have you heard and/or said?

Do you have a favorite?



DISCLAIMER: I did not make these up...
in fact, I don't use them (much)
...cuz I try really hard to not make
disparaging remarks about others.

I do think they are interesting, though.

That is my all time favorite. I know others but of course can not think of them right now.

My favorite these days is "if you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all".
