I'm not sure if this is word play on an old saying, or the origin of it:

"A burro is an ass. A burrow is a hole in the ground.  You should know the difference."

These are a few I heard my Daddy use quite a bit.
1.  He couldn't find his fanny (burro) with both hands
2. Son, if you had a brain, you would take it out and play with it
3.  It is a good moon to cut hogs
