Appalachian Phrase of the Day



Do you ever have those moments, when speaking with an adult, that you wonder how they function in life?  How do they get along, socialize, and make it through a daily routine?  

For me it seems to happen when I encounter a person who can't see the forest for the trees.  One who is so encompassed in his/her own beliefs that they cannot see the outside world.  This has happened a fair amount lately.  Perhaps it is the politics and the nature of our world today.  Whatever it is I have a phrase that keeps my mind bright and positive.  

"He's so dumb he could throw his self on the ground and miss."  

Now, I don't say it aloud, but it does provide me some mental relief and a bit of a laugh.  

In fact I can barely utter it without breaking down in laughter.  I hope it gives you a good laugh today.  No doubt we could all use one.

  1. I think a fun phrase I heard was , " The lights are on , but nobody is home." I like yours real well.

  2. I like that one, I've never heard that one.. but I like a few of these - "He's not the sharpest tool in the shed." or "She's one brick short of a load." In fact there are so many terms for stupid people that one might wonder if there are that many smart ones! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. I've met a few like that I can tell yer. Shortsighted, tunnel blind, and self focussed and hang the rest apart from THEM. Your phrase made me laugh out loud.

    I've been away from Blogsville for a while but hope to return more regularly soon. A lot of friends appear to have thrown in the towel which is a shame.

    Wishing you a veru Happy New Year . . . . Eddie :)

  10. While I have never heard that phrase before, we did hear one when we lived in VA which went, “Bless his (her) heart” and we were later told it meant the person was an idiot. Your phrase made me smile as well, Michelle.
