The English language is filled with clichés
many of which tend to fall on deaf ears:
some might even make a little sense
while others make no sense at all
and where it stops nobody knows
the grass is always greener on the other side
you’ll cut off your nose to spite your face
I love you but we’re strangers when we meet
especially when my wife is with me
what goes around comes around
he threw himself at her feet
she stormed out of the room
with her nose up in the air
what you see is what you get
you get what you pay for
what happens in Vegas…
long ago and far away
we weren’t allowed to do that when we were your age
that is above my pay grade
if a frog had wings he wouldn’t have to bump his butt
when pigs fly
once in a blue moon
once in a lifetime
you can’t have your cake and eat it, too
it’s hotter than a mother-in-law’s tongue
He’s so clumsy he’d trip over a cordless phone.
He’s about as handy as a back pocket on a shirt.
That’s about as useful as a trap door on a canoe.
He couldn’t carry a tune if he had a bucket with a lid on it.
She was so tall she could hunt geese with a rake.
She was so tall if she fell down she would be halfway home.
He was so fat it was easier to go over top of him than around him.
It happened faster than a knife fight in a phone booth.
NO!! I AM NOT FALLING ASLEEP!! I was just checking for holes in my eyelids.
Somebody beat him with the ugly stick.
I’ll knock you so hard you’ll see tomorrow today.
Dumb as a bucket of rocks.
If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride
