    I think this comes under the title "local colloquialism".

    "sweating like a hen drawing rails" One of my parents used to say this when they were working hard or it was hot weather.

    "like pulling hen's teeth"- when a task was difficult.

    "you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear."

    Don't look a gift horse from the behind.

    As the leading cause of hoof and head disease, that one doesn't need explaination.

    WOW! But you know what? Up here in the "Frozen great white North" crocus plants are up & I saw some spring bulbs peeking out of the earth in my Mom's garden. We've basically had a green winter, here. Some snow comes, but it's gone in a few days. Even the storm that was forecast for our area currently is MUCH less than expected so far. Maybe 1-2" on the ground now.

    Speaking for myself, I have never heard: "I wish they would take out more taxes from my paycheck. I think the things this administration spends money on are so - well, AMERICAN."

    Two of my personal favorite statements that had to be said to my siblings when they were little:

    "We don't lick the bottom of our shoes!"
    "We don't ride the cat!" (Big cat, tiny toddler)

    I am not my own, I've surrendered to You, Lord.
    I am not of this world, Heaven is my home.

    Another dumb dutchman joke.


    It goes:

    Can you catch flies?

    The yes answer is with a wheelbarrow.
    With a wheelbarrow?
    Yes, when it's full of manure. Haha....

    But if you answer Nein, then they tell you to close your mouth.


    The guts to the joke are above.
