I Always Wanted A Brass Brassiere
Friday, December 19, 2008
It's cold outside -- and this has brought to mind phrases about Witch's Tits and whatnot -- and this has set me off on another of my ponderings about such phrases.
I mean, who do you think first coined that particular phrase -- "Colder than a witch's tit in a brass brassiere?"
For that matter, who uttered the initial version of "Slicker than snot on a doorknob"?
Or "Colder than a well-digger's ass"?
Or "Dumb as a box of rocks"?
Who were these people? Will we ever know? Do they mind that we use their witticisms without credit?
Since it is unlikely that you will be able to answer these questions in any definitive manner, please include your own favorites in comments.
Here are some more that I like:
One coupon shy of a toaster.
Sharp as a marble.
Couldn't organize a piss-up in a brewery.
Ugly as a sack of spanners.
Ugly as a bulldog licking piss off a nettle.
Couldn't pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were on the heel.
