My brother used to always say
"It's on like a pot of neck bones"
I'm not sure if he made that up or what.

I'm pretty sure no one, just an old saying "you can't fix stupid"  ;).  Which brings to mind another for me from "Forest Gump, Momma always said stupid is as stupid does", ya that one pretty much defines me  :D.

Watched 'Barnwood Builders' the other night, never seen it before.  One of the guys on the show said "Tougher than two yellow toe nails".  Cracked me up for some reason. :D
