"Better dead than red".

And the switch you came back with BETTER meet their standards, otherwise they are going to go get one and you aren't going to like that at all. How do I know this? Just trust me, I know.

Better red than dead.

I've got a little ceramic kilroy hanging over the edge of my gun cabinet. It's there right along with my Dad's WWII helmet, some AF hardhats I used to use, and bunch of caps identifying USAF, NASA, SAC, etc.

Stay well and safe, Pards! :FlagAm:

You don't have sense enough to pour p*ss out of a boot.

I still use that term for tall thin folks.

I’m tall and slim and when the nurse in my doctor’s office met me for the first time recently she said, “My, you’re a tall drink of water.”  I hadn’t heard that in eons, much less from someone in her late 30’s.

Heads I win, tails you lose.

 

Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.

 

You get what you get and you don't throw a fit.

 

When I'd tell my older brother to let me up when he'd pinned me down - "A lot of people want out of prison too."

 

He ain't the sharpest tool in the shed.

 

She's got round heels.

 

Are you an angel that's fallen to earth? Cause you remind me of Satan.

 

I wouldn't say he's ugly, but when he was born the doctor turned him over and said, "Look twins."

 

That woman is as nervous a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

 

Not saying he's dumb, but you could use his head for a hammer.

Heck, I wouldn't know what that is.

 

If you're talking about what I think you're talking about, around here they were known as curb feelers.
