Spaceman Spiff Posted February 5, 2015 Share #1 Posted February 5, 2015 Yesterday we had in interesting conversation in the office concerning the things old timers say. So naturally, it got me to thinking... Time for a new thread! My Grandfather was a funny, funny man. He would have the best one-liners, sayings, or whatever. I don't remember all that much though because he passed away around 15 years ago. I sure do miss him. Anyway, there was this time I was helping him fix a part on his tractor and I wasn't exactly holding the part still as he was working... he stopped and looked at me and said "You shake like a dog sh***ing in a briar patch." It was a good five minutes before I could compose myself enough for us to go on. Everytime he would think I was BSing him, he would always say "Don't pee (insert proper word) on my leg and tell me its raining." I wish I had written down some of his stuff. I remember an old Master Chief who would always say "F*** 'em all but six so they can be your pallbearers." Sailors tend talk salty, you know... That guy was funny! He once told this E4 (she looked like she was sick) that she looked like death eating a cookie. I guess you just had to be there... I love hearing the stuff that old timers would say. Anyone got anything to add? davyboy, CaptainSteve and fletch944t 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
