A Saying Not Worth Displaying!

So way back when at my den, the cat stumbled upon a saying that he used for another displaying, and it spurred this post, with Betsy going on about it too at my coast. But it was all me, not her at my sea.

Not to mention...
Gets some attention.
For you may say it,
But out the words you will spit.

May I take a seat...
You ask as you greet.
When really you are going to sit,
No matter if they throw a fit.

I'm not supposed to tell...
But you still give a yell.
Such a blabber mouth.
Maybe your face will get a growth.

With all due respect...
Respect you neglect.
Going to say it any way,
Respect be damned at your bay.

Bless her little heart...
Means she is a slow fart,
Belonging on the people of wal mart,
Pushing a shopping cart.

Stays behind closed doors...
Means let's go do chores,
Out of ear shot,
And I'll blabber a whole lot.

Did you hear...
Then comes fear.
Whether you heard it or not,
You will soon be taught.

Waiting with bated breath...
Means you'd rather have death,
But are humoring them,
So they don't flem.

Can I have your blessing...
Well we are confessing,
I just went and did it anyway.
Whether or not you think it is okay.

No strings attached...
Means we aren't matched,
But what the hell,
Let's humpty hump for a spell.

Those are just some of the many that popped in as I gave them a spin. Humans always feeling the need to say such stupid things at their feed, when really they are going to do it anyway come what may. I won't let any of them come to pass and still wiggle away with my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  2. I'm not supposed to tell.
    But still they get to smell
    Something juicy
    Something fishy
    But it does not ring a bell

  4. If English I did not understand
    Would I go out and literally beat a band?
    In a place where I worked once long ago
    A man with scant English, I told him where to go
    I said, "Please take a chair in the hall."
    And he did, thinking we're having a ball
    He lugged a big over-stuffed chair
    To the hall with the utmost of care

    1. lol that would have been funny to see
      Good thing it is known by you and me
      Or we'd lug chairs all day
      Not good for the back at ones bay

  5. What about people that say "no offense, but" - they're the real criminals
    Ok ok not really criminals, for I know that's minimal
    But when you preface something with "no offense"
    I'm not going ot fall for that, for I'm not that dense

  6. Most of them are a hallow courtesy before doing something anyway.
    And here in the South, the full saying is - bless your heart, you stupid fool. (Only you don't actually say the last part.)

  8. I'm with the optimistic existentialist/language is full of turns and tricks/my favourite one involves the "I'm not being racist, but..."/and yet out of his mouth all it comes out is racist smut! :-)

  9. I found this so funny, some of the words people use to preface something they know that they're asking cheekily or optimistically makes me laugh although I am often guilty of using them all!

  11. Asking for that seat is a must you know
    many people play the seat saving game
    as they wait for others to join their show
    seat saving game can be rather lame
    especially if you're the one saving the seat
    while the others prance around to their beat

    I once went to a show at a casino you see
    waited in line for two hours just to get a seat
    first come first serve was the golden rule
    when they start to seat, it wasn't too cool
    people filed back in the waiting line
    I'm afraid I was pushed too far behind
    seems they were able to save spots
    for up to four, put my stomach in knots
    no way I'd make it to the show floor
    heck, I couldn't even get to the door
    so squeezed into the bar for a view
    so unfair but, who would have knew

    a lesson learned that day, what more
    can I say waiting in line doesn't pay
    should have just hit the slots and played
    after the show first slot won a 50 spot..lol..

    1. lol your tale is caution to all
      When at a place like the casino hall
      Gambling with a seat you are
      Or sitting behind a far away bar
      If you be nice and stand in line
      Instead slink around like a feline
      Between legs and overs seats
      Then you can get close to the beats
      If others don't like it what do you care
      You are close to hear the music blare
      Then you have actually won
      Beat the house, what fun!

  12. If don't know what to say-
    smile or hum,
    and go away -
    if they keep the blabbing way.

  15. People say them but never mean them

  16. These are good ones. 'How are you?' is another. People'd think you're weird if you told them how you are when they asked. I think you're just supposed to say, "Fine, and how are you?" to be deemed normal. :)

    1. Yeah that is the way
      At every bay
      When you hear them say

  19. I like, "Can I ask you a question?"
    First of all...by asking that question, you're asking me a question anyway.
    Second of all, the question is nearly always offensive.

    Also, "Can you do me a favor?"
    Why ask that silly question? Just ask for whatever bad thing you want, first. No one wants to agree to doing a favor before knowing what it is, but forcing them to say no first makes them look bad. Hate that...
