#284)"late"

The late dead person.
This one always confused me? How can they be late if they're not around anymore?
Like the late Bob Barker used to say "Help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered"

#283)"Let's cut to the chase"

What chase?

#282)"can I have a word with you"

It's always more than just one word.

#281)"with all due respect"

It seems no one really means it anymore when they say this.

#280)"Went to town"

"I went to town on it". People say this a lot, without even leaving their home.

#279)"Jumping Jehosaphat!"

I have no idea? Maybe something religious?

#278)"That would cost me an arm and a leg"

This Elephant named Mosha was seven months old when she stepped on a landmine in Thailand 2006. The explosion severed her right foreleg making it very hard to get around. Later on they had to amputate. This two year old Elephant has been fitted with a prosthetic leg at the Friends of the Asian Elephant Hospital in Hangchatr, northern Thailand. Amazing what they can do now medically.

#277)"head on a platter"

They used to place heads on a platter? I guess to eat their brains!

#276)"Way to use your noodle"

Supposed to be referring to your head I guess?

#275)The Holy Grail of...



Seen this saying a lot referring to the greatest find of things.

#274)"bite your tongue"

Only leaves you with a mouth full of blood.

#273)"bum rush"

Have you ever actually seen a bum rush?

#272)" What Doesn't kill You Makes You Stronger"


I can think of a lot of things that this saying doesn't work with.

#271)"Okie Dokie"

Lame... Basically saying Ok twice.

#270)"They're Throwing Their Life Away"

Only if they jumped off a bridge.

#269)"Crazy Like A Fox"

Are foxes crazy?

#268)"Your Dead Meat"

Eww!!!

#267)"Drink Up"

I always thought it should be Drink Down.

#266) Shots Are On The House

Your in a bar not on a house

#265)Off The Chart

Time for a bigger chart.

#264)"Old Bag"

I guess it's an unpleasant,ugly or ill-tempered woman.

#263)"All Walks Of Life"

That would include insects,animals and humans! But humans usually refer to other humans while saying this?

#262)"What A Tangled Web We Weave"

How does this have ANYTHING to do with humans?

#261)"Elbow Grease"

It still makes no sense to me?

#260)"Cold shoulder"

Always a bummer...

Worthless Sayings
