Linguistics

All of us are working so dang hard!
I think we should all spice up the day by
using the internet with its great capabilities.

For instance, wouldn't that memo, fax or report be
so much more fun in Pig Latin?
If anyone needs help simply go to this site
and enter the info you want "translated"

Merry Christmas!!

Funny little sayings

While trying to pass time during the 8-hour drive back from Boston this weekend, peeps and I started talking about sayings that everyone uses but don't really make that much sense. There's a word for these things but I didn't take English classes in college and have no idea what that word is. Where do they come from and what are they called? Ahh... it doesn't matter... I just like lists.


1. [That] puts a wrench in things.

2. [That's] nothing to shake a stick at.

3. [It's] colder than a witch's tit (or titty).

4. [I have to] pee like a racehorse.

5. [He's] like a ticking bomb.


It's also been brought to my attention that people on the East Coast say "Ave" -- while those of us from the fabulous West Coast say "Avenue." Weird. And "pop" versus "soda"...

Got any others?
