What I love about MY south: Colloquialisms

My South

He’s busier than a one-legged man at a butt kickin contest!

Don’t you pee on my leg and tell me it’s rainin’!

She could make a preacher cuss!

You’ve got champagne taste with a beer pocketbook.

He doesn’t have a pot to pee in or a window to throw it out.

It’s raining like a cow peeing on a flat rock.

My husband’s favorite: He’s grinning like a jackass eating briars or a possum eating a lemon.

Crazier than a run-over dog.

It's hotter than a whore in church.

Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit

He fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

He’s as country as cornflakes

This is gooder’n grits

As full as a tick

She’s so ugly she’d make a freight train back down a dirt road.

Finer that frogs’ hair

dumb as dirt or dumb as a brick

crazy as a betsy bug

crazier (or more nervous) than a long-tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs

ate up by a coyote & "pooped" off a cliff

come to Jesus meetin'

sober as a judge

ridin on the short bus

I trust him 'bout as a far as I can throw him.

ugly as sin

month of Sundays

not the sharpest tool in the shed

His elevator doesn't go all the way to the top.

The lights are on, but nobody is home.

You can't get there from here.

He jumped out of the frying pan into the fire.
