TBD on Ning

I have found myself using somewhat quaint terms that I have heard all my life and have no explanation of what they really mean.
i.e: " My ass is grass".....I used this term tonight to refer that my cat, Ted, is out...on the loose and must be brought in before DD gets home and finds out....
Another one is "ass over tea kettle".   Yet another is "got my ass in a sling over that".
My mom used to refer to my oldest brother being "Pecks bad boy"  (I finally had to google that one)!
What are some terms that you have grown up with and it elicits a smile or a cocked eyebrow when you use it.

Or, "Ain't laughed so hard since the hogs ate my little brother".


This may be a derivitive of that one....

G K Chesterton when making a point has been quoted many times by dividing folks into two groups, leaders and followers etc. ... Apparently he made the above quotation poking fun at himself ....
