The expression "cat on a hot tin roof" means: Being very nervous and unable to sit still for a long period of time.

Today's version is "ADD" or "ADHD"

get the lead out


Also, get the lead out of one's feet or pants. Hurry up, move faster. For example, Get the lead out of your pants, kids, or we'll be late, or, even more figuratively, Arthur is the slowest talker--he can't seem to get the lead out and make his point. This expression implies that lead, the heaviest of the base metals, is preventing one from moving. [Slang; first half of 1900s]

Funny, I thought it had to do with buck shot or lead bullets, or some type of military theme. Humm. Gotta be more involved than this...

Unfortunately this term is used a lot in my industry.
 
LONG IN THE TOOTH

When a horse grows old its gums recede and if you examine its mouth it looks 'long in the tooth'.

"Putting some lead in your pencil." - from the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine.": "To insert a foreign object into ones Urethra for the enhancement of sexual pleasure, especially during masterbation." On pg. 510 of "The Complete Kama Sutra", Lead dildos were preferably used more than wood or bone because of their "soft, yet pleasant roughness."

Happy Horseshit

A term used by the elder generation to denote frivolous activity which they find annoying.

I grew up hearing this term by my father and grandfather

"I'm tired of dealing with this happy horseshit"
"I'm not listening to your happy horseshit anymore"

I have no idea where this phrase started...I just know it was very common where I grew up.

I also grew up hearing "It's way out in east bunny f**k"....term used to describe a location that is considered to far away and not really worth it

I heard it as BFE. I guess it took too long to say it all.

Interesting how both descriptors use the same letters.

"For the Love of Pete" and "Honest to Pete"-probably from when using the word "God" in an expletive was considered blasphemy. "Pete" probably refers to St. Peter.

A few from the north of England...

"Well, I'll go to the foot of our stairs!"

"He was standing there, like piffy on a rock bun"

"He's all there with his lemon drops"

: )

Fabulous Snow White, thanks! I really enjoy learning more about how folks express themselves.

snow white 07-20-2013 06:41 AM

You're very welcome : )

i was raised in da south (n.c.)...
 
"well, slap my head and call me silly!" (well, i'll be damned!)

"me-n-you are gonna mix." (get into a ruckus.)

“s/he don't got all what belongs to him/her.” (a bit crazy)

"it happened faster than a knife fight in a phone booth."

"you went around your elbow to get to your thumb!" (used for describing how one could have taken a shortcut but took the long way instead)

Ohhhh I love this thread!! I am extremely interested in words, word origins and phraseology in general. There is a wonderful show on H2 called "America's Secret Slang" It even explains the origins of Y'all...and it's NOT what you think!

The Scot/Irish settled the south in a time when YE was the word for YOU. When they would talk about a group they would say Ye all....abbreviated to y'all! Fascinating stuff :)

They explain Trail blazing...so many things. I'm so enamored with that show!
