There have been many over the years, JFK's "Ask not what your country can do for you........." is a good one.

Have you come up with one that deserves an ear? Post it.

Here's one I came up with today:

"When I'm challenged I do well, when I challenge myself I do better."

I Googled this, it's not there.

Got one? Love to hear it.

Technically it's my grandmother's, but she gave it to me as a nickname:

Hard Way Jones

No matter the task, I always end up doing it the hard way first, then figure out what (or am told) the easy way is.

But dang it - the hard way is always more fun!!!



Edited to add:

I thought of another one... reserved for times of peak, and usually tenuous, curiousity...

"I embraced Curious George as a child..."

the phrase I always use that now all my freinds use has to come if someone says anything about your mother to which you reply:

"I don't have a momma...Me and my daddy share yours !! "


I have others.....but some are VERY offensive !!

Due to the rhyming nature of my name... instead of a "No Call No Show"
we have re-coined it... "No Call No Froh" because I constantly blow people off.

Back in high school we had a saying, and in parts of Muskogee and Eufaula some people still use it when something bad happens.

"D*MN IT THOMAS!"

Here's the one I use frequently; I don't really know why......



"Pray for me boys, I'm goin in"

Maybe I heard it somewhere else and just don't remember.

how about this one...I mean two.....

"Well, wrap a string around it and name it Betty"

"If it looks like a duck and talks like a duck; ask it out to dinner"

"If I were you; I wouldn't be"

"Look, my fingers are all made of wax"

As most of you American sports ethusiasts know, Mike & Mike of ESPN Radio have the 'Just Shut Up Awards' every Tuesday. Well, I think I beat them with this award and saying that I came up with.

This guy deserves the "Moron of the Week" Award for Stupidity.

No offense to you guys of course.

Here is one, fresh from the burners.

"A truly diverse society is like a good soup.
One that cannot be made by boiling all the ingredients seperately, tossing them together, and expecting them to taste good."

My father coined a good one. Whenever he needed to sit down to tkae care of his business in the bathroom, he would say:

"I gotta see a man about a horse."

I have no idea where that comes from or what it means.....but he got a kick out of it.
