When You Can't Get The Saying Right, Don't Say It!

When You Can't Get The Saying Right, Don't Say It!

You know when an old saying is on the tip of your tongue, but you just can't remember it word-for-word? We've all been there, and the following is a list of those well known expressions...sort of:

  • "We'll burn that bridge when we get to it."
  • "Let's nip this in the butt." / "Let's nibble this in the butt."
  • "Don't eat with your mouth full!"
  • "I'm not going to let this guy shine on my parade."
  • "Water under the dam." / "Water over the bridge."
  • "He's disgusting. He smokes like a fish!"
  • "We're killing two birds for the price of one."
  • "If it had legs it would have bit you."
  • "You'll know it like the back of your head."
  • "That's the way the crumble cookies."
  • "I don't want to sound like a dead horse."
  • "Let's take a wild stab in the back."
  • "Around here, it's always feast or phantom." -- A waitress, when it was pointed out that the restaurant was not very busy.
  • "If you could get it working I'd be internally grateful." -- From email sent to a web site administrator.
  • "This is the piece of the puzzle that allows you to paint in the rest of the pie." -- A salesperson, describing a new telephony service.
