Interesting sayings/slang from your region

I was thinking about a conversation I had with my buddy, and he used the phrase they didn’t get cock soup. Which means you got nothing. I hadn’t heard that phrase used in years

The British have all kinds of interesting slang as well.

Just wondering what your local phrases are that might be interesting to others

@ninjastar is there a way to turn off the 15 character minimum when posting? It really doesn’t make any sense to use it, if there’s the option to switch it off it would be nice

We also say you have to fly with your own wings. It means that you’re on your own. I think knock on wood is international.

When I first came to Canada I was a kid and when the ball went on someones front lawn they told me they will break my feet if I come back onto their territory. I found it mean. Does it mean to stay away?

Nope, sorry. I also find it annoying at times, but the upside is that it keeps posts interesting and thoughtful.

Sometimes when I don’t hit the limit I just write 151515. But mire often,I revise my statement to be slightly longer. I think that makes for more interesting threads, and generally facilitates conversation more.
