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.
didn't see your post before i posted. sorry to steal from you. that is one meaning , i guess. what else could it mean?

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

A friend of mine always says "like stink on sh*t" or "like white on rice." I know I have some "Minnesotan specific" sayings, but I can't think of them. I did hear one in a movie the other night that I'd never heard before--"we're going to get belly down drunk."
