Trying to put a nappy (diaper) on my daughter was like trying to put an octopus in a string bag, and was about as successful as nailing fog to the wall or jelly to the ceiling.

And a bag full of weasels describes her beautifully, if the weasels are covered in marmite and wearing nothing but knickers and patent leather shoes......

As much use as a chocolate condom (although you could eat them if your date turned out to be)

As stiff as bowl of soup,

Bent as a safety pin,

Pissed as any three farts (the UK sense, meaning drunk),

Limp as the last chicken in the shop.

"like a cow pissing on a flat rock" was once used to describe the sound made by my shuffling of a deck of cards.
"cold as a mother-in-law's kiss" is the way I heard it.
"cold as a stainless steel toilet seat on the north end of an iceberg"
"homely as a mud fence"
and speaking of fences:
"she was so snaggletoothed that she could eat watermelon through a picket fence"
"dead as a fish"
"It is as clear as mud, but it covers the ground."
"as remorseful as a kid eating an unripe persimmon"

Face like sour candy

If you had my cat, you wouldn't make jokes about cat farts - he smells like a buzzards' bollocks the day before bath night.

He smells so bad, I'm thinking of applying a pineapple and a croquet mallet....

How bad does he smell? He smells like a chemical paintstipper stripping paint made of shit.

If he were in the same room as a tramp (bum), the tramp would be offended!

Love the grandmothers, I want to be like that when I have to be one!!

Our version was he hasn't the sense God gave a lettuce.

And our non PC was 'camp as a row of pink tents', one that will for ever describe a friend, now sadly gone, victim of the big C, who, at a folk festival, unrolled his tent and proceeded to pitch. After a muffled exclaimation, he emerged waving a pair of pants/trollies/shreddies/whatever you want to call them, in the air and saying 'I wondered where they had gone'. Now, given that he hadn't been camping since the festival the previous year, you just knew that they had been in there for 12 months, but were never quite certain that it might not have been more...... For him, the world will always be 'sooooooo fruity'.

Aren't grandmothers wonderful? When my grandmother was 90 she fell and broke her hip. As they were lifting her onto the stretcher a nurse commented about the queen mother having also done that recently my grandmother said "Oh should I wave?" Then a young doctor patted her gently on the shoulder and said "Not to worry, lots of elderly ladies brreak their hips." My grandmother replied that she may be elderly but she'd never been a lady.

Hey El Swanno, I'd heard that one about the thistle, it makes your mouth go dry just to think of it.The thig about all the posts is the little visual image they produce. My Aunt used to say "I wouldn't piss on him if he was on fire" And a particularly lovesick friend said about the woman he fancied "I would crawl 5 miles over broken glass just to hear her tell me F*** off"

My grandmother left me with: "Grinning like a jack-ass eating prickly pears", and to describe a downpour "It's coming down like a cow pissing on a flat rock"

A Brit friend of mine will describe someone as looking like "A bulldog licking piss off a thistle"

Try not to think about that for a while. E.S.
