I would here this a lot, "Cats fur, to make a pair of kitten britches"!

Sometimes I heard this, "I'm happy as a clam in high water".

“Bitch n***a”


They’d call me that when I was pouting or sulking or didn’t get my way. Or when I whined about life being unfair

"I'm going to stomp a mudhole in him."

In fairness, threats of violence were rarely carried through.

My grandmother hated losing at cards, canasta, bridge, spades...anything. Besides trying to cheat her favorite saying was "Well, looks like I'm sucking hind tit!"

He would grumble most of it. Reminds me of "The Christmas Story Dad"
He had another one that I don't quite remember, something like "sufferin' cats", said when you would normally say "Dammit" ("Sufferin' cats, Carl :-)). I do remember it always made me think of Looney Toons' "Sufferin' Succotash".

" Heavens to Murgatroyd " from the cartoon Snagglepuss, that caught on fast with the old folks in the 60's.

Hotter than a chili pepper.

Slicker than owl shit on a hot tin roof.

It's raining cats and dogs, still used today.

Shut up so your brother can go to sleep!

Stop talking, yur giving me a headache.

“Neither a borrower nor a lender be..." ~ Shakespeare ( Mother)

“Double, double toil and trouble” ~ Shakespeare (Mother)

"Oh! What A Tangled Web We Weave When First We Practice To Deceive" ~ Sir Walter Scott ( Mother)

Holy Jumpin' Jerusalem! ~ (Father--a LOT)
Don't remember any others but there could be more. Mom was an avid reader and both parents were amateur Shakespearean actors.

I used to hear one of my aunts and other parents use that one on her kids.

Oh yeah, I got a version of this one too.

Heard other parents say this. Very common one.

Once again, an aunt, the same one used this a lot. When their father got home, he'd take a kid into a room and hit the back of a chair with his belt. Then he let them out. He'd never touch them. I only found this out recently from one of my cousins.

She also used to say, "I'll beat you black and blue, until blood draws."
She had eight of them and they drove her nuts, but they love her to death even to today.

If a frog had wings he wouldn't bump his ass every time he jumped.

You're/he's/she's just whistling past the graveyard.

You/he/she couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

Like shit through a goose.

Turd in a punch bowl.

A day late and a dollar short.

Well, bless his/her/your heart.
