Heard many times from and old friend, " as useless as a rubber beak on a woodpecker" or when he was irritated in a discussion he would say " I refuse to have a battle of wits with someone who is unarmed".  :laugh:

Its not a saying but I've only heard this in the South:

"Its all kattywampus and bojangled." Translation for fellow Yankees: off kilter
"If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up"
"If not now, when?"

Not from the south, but have heard and used "kattywampus" for years. Also heard the bojangled but never heard them together. That would add just confusion to the description.  ;)

it's hard to soar like a eagle, if you fly with buzzards.
