    When I die I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my Uncle Will - not yelling and screaming like the other 5 people in the car he was driving at the time.

To those to whom it applies:  Just a reminder folks, this is an old sayings thread, not gross sayings.  Let's clean it up.

You can't fly with the eagles all day if you hoot with the owls all night.

The last two posts had to be removed.  That brings the count to 15 posts that have been removed from this thread.  Some old sayings should stay in the past.  It was a whole different era.   Disguising words using dollar signs for an S doesn't make it more acceptable.

Hopefully everyone knows this is meant to be funny and not serious. If you eat something and it is good, or if you like something a lot, sometimes people say "oooo weeee, that will make you slap your Grandma!" :D :D :D

Years ago, when I used to coach football, the head coach was a little round man.  One time, when he was evidently hungry, he mentioned that his backbone was rubbing a blister on his belly button.
