Oh goodness, my dad has SO MANY random things he says! It’s mainly when he’s upset…my dad doesn’t curse at all, so his favorite thing to say when he gets mad is “kiss a duck”. Not quite sure what it means…but he likes to yell it really loudly. Smile

My mom always says, “well shoot far!” which I think is actually supposed to be fire.. it’s just hard to tell with her accent.

My Grandma has the best sayings. When she is dealt a bad hand when playing cards (Rummy), she says, “Oh Dear! There’s a dog from every town!”

We don’t have much of sayings as we do a special voice/accent we do… we call it the porkchop voice. And we are weird.

My Dad says “man alive!” a lot. Thinking about it, it’s really funny.

My mom has an “I’m proud of you” song, that we (we = my siblings, ages 20 – 43) still get sung to us if we do something worthy… I’ve started singing it to my Fiance too 🙂 I would share the words but you really have to sing it for the full effect 🙂

My older brother makes up names for us too.. my name is Laura, but he calls me Laurtimizer Stumbartimizer. Really. All the time. Did I mention he was 43 with 2 kids?

These are cracking me up – I love it!

I just thought of another of my dad’s favorites – “sheep dip”…like if something goes wrong he goes “well, sheep dip!” in a really annoyed voice. I have to admit, it’s pretty hard not to laugh at my dad when he’s mad. Smile

Not my parents, but all the cousins in my family have a saying of saying Chianti when they’re upset/surprised… but they say it like Kee-anti! It started because when they were all younger (and I was very very young) they got in the habit of saying “Jesus Christ” which always got them in trouble. So they started saying Jesus Chi… which also got them in trouble. So then they started saying Chi-anti haha. It’s just stuck even though most of them are in their 30s now.

I can’t think of any the older generation of my family uses, except for just specific words that I find funny (icebox, davenport, cross (as in, don’t make me cross)). I’ll try to think of more.
