It's In The Can, Man!

Ever hear the saying above? Seems that and much like it get some love. But you know most times it seems those who say such things are just trying to fleece you out of your stuff in your wings.

So it really is in the can, man.
Go out and get a tan.
Just leave me in control.
I promise not to be a mole.

The cats in the bag.
There will be no lag.
Trust in me.
But this advice isn't free.

It's a done deal.
This is for real.
So what if he didn't sign on the dotted line.
Give it another day and all will be divine.

Done and dusted.
In me you trusted.
I even cleaned it for you.
You can trust me, its true.

It is done like dinner.
That makes you a winner.
So don't be a sinner.
Take your chicken dinner.

It was over before it began.
Didn't even need another kick at the can.
This deal is so great.
It'll fill your plate.

Done up like a dog's dinner.
That could be a head spinner.
But don't listen to the words.
Instead listen to the singing birds.

You'll be laughing all the way to the bank.
The dough will go clickity clank.
You'll be as rich as a banker.
So trust me, you wanker.

The deal is cooking now.
It is going to really wow.
Just give me another day.
I will get you your pay.

It's a home run.
Ground rule doubles are no fun.
Instead you hit it over the wall.
Trust me and have a ball.

I guess the moral of the story is even with all this great idiom biz, don't count your chickens before they hatch. You may end up with a rotten batch. Now I will go pass some gas, which is more fruitful from my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have nice fall.

  20. These idioms are fun to read
    entertaining again at your feed
    I'm sure it was easy as can be
    "A Piece of Cake"
    perhaps, I need to do a double take
    "A drop in the bucket"
    as you make your way to Nantucket

    Oh, but the one I like from your list
    the one that I just couldn't resist
    "You'll be laughing all the way to the bank"
    hope it isn't a prank, or I will say no thanks..

    Pat, hope you & the cats are fine at your mat..

    1. Can keep the cake
      Makes my legs shake
      But a drop in the bucket you say
      Can it be a bucket of gold on the bay?
      If that was a prank
      I'd give ones hair a yank lol

  21. Lol this is so simple but I started laughing from the minute I read the title right up until the end. Brilliant haha.

  24. I remember the ole days when
    A Ginsu knife was added in
    But Wait! Cuz that's not all
    With this new gadget, you'll have a ball
    Don't know how it works or what it is
    But it really is the latest shiz
    So order now and don't be late
    We're almost out. You mustn't wait.
    But wait once more, cuz that's not all...
