Old or new, I have never heard it.

I have a State Trooper that helps me on his days off. He told me a story about the "boyfriend" his daughter brought home one evening.
He was talking about the kind of teenager that puts the rings in his ears to make big holes, pierced chin and tongue with metal balls showing, wires running through his nose, hooks in his scalp and eye brows........

My helper described him as SOMEONE WHO HAD FELL FACE FIRST INTO A TACKLE BOX!  :D :D :D :D :D

Thats when I had to just turn the mill off.....I was rolling!

This young man no longer dates this Trooper's daughter.  :D
I'm thinking......

We had them show up at work with all the rings and such. I told one of them I  could use him for a cantdog. There was a couple there that understood what I meant.

this may have been posted before. a friend reminded me of an old saying i had not heard in years. speaking about someone born into a wealthy family you would say he or she was born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

Since you brought up planes how about "any landing you can walk away from was a good one".

When my mother figured something I was doing was wrong or unfruitfull she said" you know Terry you dont have to ride the garbage truck all the way to the dump" my wife has said to me"you know what? your a waste of good air" hard to comeback on that one.

These were ones I heard over the years.  Sorry if any of these are duplicates but 32 pages is a lot to read.

On someone who conjectures endlessly - If "if" was a skiff we'd all go for a row in the lake. 

On someone who debates the topic alot - If "if's" and "buts" were gifts and nuts we'd have Christmas every day.

On someone longwinded - He could talk Christ off the cross.

On someone miserly - He'd squeeze a penny til Abe cried mercy.

On dumb mistakes - A fool gets burned twice by the same candle.

On the summer heat - Hot as a rat in a wool sock.  Or, Too hot for fish to swim.

On someone who takes a long time to run an errand - He went to use the outhouse and the hogs ate him.

On someone's exaggeration - Well don't let the truth get in the way of a good story!

On getting your words mixed up - My tongue got wrapped around my eye teeth and I couldn't see what I was saying.

On tempting fate - Speak of the devil and the devil appears.  (I think that's actually scripture.)

General bragging - I'm so far ahead of you I'm delivering tomorrow's news.

On chronic liars - He'd walk 10 miles to climb a tree and tell a lie!

On someone taking credit for something - A broken clock is right twice a day/Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn on occasion

On the perils of being greedy - Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered

There's more, I'll have to remember them.
Firewood is energy independence on a personal scale.

Or the related, "Beat to fit, paint to match"

landscaper also reminded me of one which someone may have already mentioned, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!"

My inlaws have been in Arizona since the first of the year and their fridge/freezer died sometime in there  :-\.  I got it out of the house last night and believe me there were smells that would "gag a maggot" in there.  My step daughter and her boy friend actually found it and had everything cleaned out but I had to take the doors off of it to fit it through the house doors  steve_smiley
