retro slang via grandma dot…

(little tobin & i have decided to bring back the favorite phrases from grandma dot)

1. go piss up a rope!
(meaning: go eff yourself – this one baffled me when i was little & made me laugh uncontrollably
– actually i’m still laughing and trying to figure out how the heck that is possible)

2. isn’t he just precious…
(meaning: isn’t he the biggest ass you have ever met…)

3. that poor bastard
(meaning: turn over all your pocket money, this one is worse off then us…)
