One I just started saying one day when my daughter was younger was (when I'm talking to my daughter or a kid) "Okey Dokey Kidokey." (James says, "Okey Dokey Karaoke

Omg that's so funny. My son says something similar.
He says Okey Dokey Artichokey

LOL James says that one sometimes too.

I loved the one about second Tuesday of next week! I have heard it before but had forgotten it. I'll have to use that one sometime!

i saw this old thread and had a good laugh, so i'll add a few.

when a hockey game starts getting rough, it's a "katie bar the door" type of match.

one of my faves is "you don't have to outrun the bear, just the guy you're hiking with".

my dad had a million expressions. there ain't no atheists in foxholes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions, no one ever said life would be fair, keep your wits about you, keep your nose in the wind and eye on the skyline, watch your topknot, and so many more.

he is a very serious man who likes to read about the old west, lol.

How about: "keep your britches on", "where's the fire" "were you born in a barn?" "hold your water", "praise the lord and pass the ammunition". Growing up, when one of us was pouting my mom would say "you better pick that lip up before you step on it!"

Funny thread, &, worth a resurrection bucky! LOL :) I say so many silly things that, I really could clack out pages of strange things that fly fly from my mouth sometimes. I don't know WHY I say 95% of it, but,...in retrospect, to be quite honest, I sometimes sound very wise & sorta crazy at the same time! LOL....(I blame the "country" in me)!

One of my favorite sayings when my kids were acting up was "Were you raised by wolves?" Said it to my oldest boy's buddy, and he responded, "NOOoooooOoooo!" , howling like a wolf.

I lived in Alabama for a while, and one of my neighbors did not curse or swear. Instead, she said, "Foot!" in a tone that sounded worse than if she had said the other F word.

This is a fun thread--thanks for digging it up!
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

For feeling not-so-smart, I like, "I cannot brain. I have the dumb."

And a Danish expression, "Peeing your pants to get warm." Might only work in cold climates ;)

My son was threatened with a Knuckle Sandwich more than once. Good thing I never gave him one because he is bigger than me now.
