Before my 6th grade talent show my grandfather said "Boy, you look more nervous then a long tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs." I never forgot that.

My dad has a million of these sayings but almost all of them are not forum friendly.  It's too bad because they are funny.

Often related...

If you were out fishing, and your boat capsized, the boat would be cattywompus and you would be discombobulated. So it's often that one follows the other.  :D

I use the sayings (and have heard them used) such that cattywampus is out of alignment (no order), and not straight (maybe like jackstraws).

And discombobulated as something being apart, or has come/fallen apart, kinda like the straw man in the Wizard of OZ.

Only as I have grown up hearing them used.
