    This game has been certified by the National Association of
    TV Doctors as a healthful way to discharge pent up emotions
    without causing hard feelings or more than minor bloodshed.
    I believe there is a lost episode of I Love Lucy in which the
    beloved quartet play this very game. It is true that Lucy
    and Desi divorced shortly thereafter, however, most scholars
    believe that was a mere kawinkydink.

    Hi Star, great post. My mother used to say "till the cows come home."
    Well, lotsa people did in those days.

    You didn't have to wait long for the cows to come home. They
    came home every day around supper time to be milked. On my great
    uncle's farm, the dog went and fetched them. At some farms a
    boy did. And some farms had an old cow who led the herd home
    at the appropriate time.


    I especially liked: Tastes great. Got any sauce?

    Stop nagging, enjoy life more

    Don't waist my time...

    I don't care how you look

    You always look ok to me...

    Not to be mean, but...

    HAHA, yep on the sauce part, childhood memories of cauliflower with ketchup or curry was the way to make it somewhat tasty :D I think we always had ketchup or curry with our cauliflower....

    I walk among geniuses. You guys are great.

    I'd rather not say.

    This hurts me to say but...

    I don't want to nit pick but...

    Who cares!

    It's not my problem.

    You always say that.

    I don't need this.

    I can do it alone.

    This sucks.


    Take a breath.

    Put a cork in it.

    Let it be.

    Let it go.

    Get real.


    I can't take it.

    I'm outta patience.

    I'm getting a headache.

    My head's gonna explode.

    Give me a break.

    OK, any duplicates are unintentional. You guys have posted soooo many good responses that I am not up to checking for any which have already been mentioned.

    Love, Mikie

    You're all outta my league.

    I'll do it tomorrow.
    Tomorrow never comes.

    Once in a blue moon.

    I've got my eye on you.

    I've got a bone to pick with you.

    Did you really think you could...

    Put a sock in it.
    Zip it.

    Quiet in the peanut gallery!

    When I was your age...

    Don't play the raw prawn with me!

    I liked the pic of the lead cow.
    A beautiful beast with gorgeous eyelashes.

    Hi Kids

    Star, never heard the "raw prawn" comment before. I looked it up.
    Read it developed in the Australian Army during WWII. Essentially
    means, don't try to fool me. Sound right?

    Yes, cows are generally perceived as placid. They can be deadly though.
    Kill more people in the United States every year than sharks do. More
    than rattlesnakes too. But the biggest killer world wide is the mosquito
    which passes along malaria.

    Malaria, I read, is Italian for mal (bad) and aria (air). Buenos Aires
    on the other hand is Spanish for good air.

    With regard to spirited discussions:
    The trouble with you is...
    I've told you a thousand times.

    Would it have hurt you to...
    Don't drag my mother into this.

    You never told me...
    You really expect me to believe...

    You've said it all...
    Thanks.That was fun.

    No seriously!

    Soul, 'luckily the kids take after me' is also often reversed, as the situation calls...
    I also remember the smell of cauliflower, cooked cabbage or brussel sprouts wafting down the road, on our way home from school.We hoped it wasn't coming from our house.
    We didn't have sauce in our house growing up :-(
    When the folks weren't looking we would block our nose with each mouthful.
    My sister would get a massive mouthful and visit the toilet to spit it out and while she was away my other sister would re-load her plate.
    Oh.The good ol' days.

    Rock, I looked up the 'death by cow' stats and was shocked to read that three quarters do it on Purpose!!
    Then I remembered some PETA clip showing these poor milking cows get flogged with a stick.
    Need I say more??
    Perhaps my imagination is a little dense, but unless they have horns, what do they do? Trample?

    I would love to have a dog like your uncle had.How clever, bringing the cows home!
    Some of the sheep-dogs here aren't nice.They nip at the back of the sheep's legs to get them moving.

    As far as the 'raw prawn' comment goes, you're absolutely right.
    My Dad used to say that.It used to scare us, but I also remember how difficult it was to keep a straight face.
    (I think he did it on purpose).
    I do it on purpose too, but coming from me, it's not half as scary and it keeps my Treasures guessing.
    and kinda lightens the mood. (Ok, by confusing them a little...)

    All these old sayings are hardly ever heard of anymore.It's sad.
    Unless you live in the Bronx perhaps?

    I've learnt a few things by this though.
    Mother in laws cop it in All cultures :)

    Hi Star

    When we kids visited our great uncle's farm we were told to stay away
    from the bull, the pig sty and the silo. All could kill you.

    The sheep dog was always a collie because another of our relatives
    raised them. The dog did not nip at the cows heels. That might
    upset the cow and result in less milk production. The cows all
    knew the daily schedule. They would come home without the
    dog once the farmer opened the gate.

    I can't image what kind of film PETA was showing. Cows are valuable.
    No farmer mistreats valuable animals. A Holstein cow (the black and white
    ones) weighs about 1500 pounds. If one steps on you accidentally you
    have a serous injury. You never get behind one because they may be
    startled and kick backwards. These kicks can be lethal.

    The other danger with cows occurred when you were milking them.
    They might swing their tail and hit you in the face. Usually the
    cow was attempting to chase away a fly.

    My farming relatives kept a radio playing in the barn. Studies
    said that the cows were more contented (Carnation Milk ads) and
    therefore gave more milk.

    With regard to mother in laws, the Chinese and Japanese have
    the worst reputations, I think. Gordon says in days gone by
    the mother in law ruled the house and daughters in law were
    often treated much like slaves. His mother was an old
    curmudgeon; she hated me. She couldn't insult me though
    The old dragon didn't speak English.

    Woa. That's horrific!
    The mule actually chased her?

    DH says they had a mean horse when he was a kid.

    Come to think of it, my dad wouldn't let us go horse riding because a friend of his mother's was kicked from walking behind a horse. She ended up in a wheelchair apparently.

    Rock, -
    does the cow tail feel like a whip or does it simply surprise the milker and sets them off balance?
    I watched a movie where a woman almost drowned in a wheat silo. Never even occurred to me that it could happen before that.

    My (step) mother in law is Chinese and is a bossy thing, but I get the feeling she's much worse with blood.
    Even the Chinese are not as 'honourable' Toward their elders as they once were ,I think.
    She (Mil),was recently told that she had to call before she visited and she shouldn't expect cooked meals , by her new Chinese daughter Inlaw.

    I Kinda felt sorry for her when she told me ,as it obviously effected her deeply.

    We used to put it down to a 'lost in translation ' thing, but she's just rude and bossy.
    I'm over it.

    Rose (Su chi), SIL ,had an awful existence with a crazy mother and stepfather. Apparently she did everything.
    Because my BIL now lives in Australia, her mother thought he was rich and kept trying to extract money out of him before she let her daughter out of the house, never mind out of the country. It's a miracle she got out.

    I'm sure it's a cultural thing.

    Since all that, the young couple and baby have moved to the city. (Probably to get away from her) and her reign as queen was very short lived.
    She is now a glorified baby sitter for them when she visits, but now I guess she'll take what she can get.

    It still annoys me sometimes when she chooses to speak in Chinese with her son ,in front of all of us, but then I no longer bend over backwards for her eigther!

    Star, "Yes, Dear," is always a good comment. It's not controversial, and you don't
    even need to listen to what the other party is saying. I don't know about
    getting hit in the face with a cow's tail. Never happened to me. I suspect it is
    irritating rather injurious.

    More of what we're posting about:

    Why did I ever think that you...
    If you would just listen for a minute...

    What does that have to do with...
    Sometimes I can't believe you...

    Fine! Do it your way. I just give up.
