"Smart people don't need advice, stupid people won't take it."

"Even a well has a limit."

"All signs fail in a dry year."

On buying horses:
"One white foot buy him, two white feet try him;
Three white feet deny him,
Four white feet and white on the nose,
Knock him in the head and feed him to the crows."
(However, I DO not believe this to be true!)

"You can always tell a Texan, but you can't tell him much."
(It's a joke, a joke, okay? :wink: :lol2: :nod:

My dad had several that I always laugh abut now, as they were pretty "descriptive".

When something was tight, it was "tighter than a boars ass sewed up with a log chain.

A dark night was, "blacker than coaley's a_ _ hole"

"Colder than a well diggers hip pocket"

I guess my favorite and seems to be too true is, "there ain't enought time to do it right, but we'll have enough time to do it right later!"

And on fixing fence, "there ain't no need to fix this hole in the fence. There ain't any tracks thru' it!" :lol:

"She's so wild she doesn't come in to water 'til after dark."

"He thinks he's a bronc rider, but he couldn't ride a sheep-wagon with the door nailed shut."

"Monkey see, monkey do."

"He's a darn poor cowhand. He's just like a bad cowdog and can only see one cow at a time."

"He couldn't find his 'not nice' if he used both hands."

"You can take a Republican and a Democrat, put them in the same barrel and roll it off a hill, and there'd be a S.O.B. on top all the way down."

"My mother said she voted for 'so-and-so' because she'd known him all her life. I told her I didn't vote for him for the same reason."

Excuse me if a couple of these are on the borderline of not being nice. :D

She is so ugly she has to sneak up on the dipper to get a drink!

Her face looks like it caught afire, and somone put it out with a rake!

I saw you mom kickin' a can down the street the other day, and asked her what she was doin? She says, movin'.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

If brains was gasoline, you couln't run a piss ants motorcycle around the inside of a Cheerio! LMAO.

You are so dumb you must be twins, cause no one person could be so dumb.

Man, I better quit before I get in trouble. :!: :wink:

Reminds me of something my grandpa said. He would say, don't do anything I wouldn't do. So I would say back, I guess that leaves it wide open then. :)
