    I read a couple in another thread so thought a thread on the subject would be popular -

    To the younger members - yes our parents really did used to say this stuff. :lol:



    beerhunter - don't run with scissors and always wear clean pant in case you get run over.

    Slayer - always tuck your vest in when it's cold

    Never wear your coat in the house as you wont feel the benefit when you go outside.

    geetee - My best advice to new brewers would be:
    Always make more than you can drink, just in case!

    I doubt his parents said that - CT :lol:

    Not sure if this is regional or not but:

    Sh!t for luck!

    If a passing bird happens to hit you from above its meant to be lucky?

    My mother in law would head straight to the betting shop if this happened expecting to win.

    Don't pick that scab, it'll get infected. :lol:

    I don't care what "everyone" is doing. I care what YOU are doing!

    If God had wanted you to have holes in your ears (eyebrows, tongue, etc.) He would have put them there!

    The calling when home was always
    "give us 3 rings duck".
    A few more;
    "A watched kettle never boils"

    Me; "what's for tea Grandma?", reply; "bread, lard and a worm".

    "Shut that door, you born in a barn?"

    When I was younger and asked what's for tea the answer was "Stewed farts and onions"
    And this is local to me.If you asked"Where are you going?
    Up a tree in Rosemont"
    If you didn't shut the door it was Were you born in a field?

    Don't sit too close to the television, it'll ruin your eyes.
