During my high school days it was common if I was sitting around with some friends trying to do some group work, or trying to come up with an idea for a project, or just trying to recall certain info, whenever someone exclaimed, "I've got it!" the usual response was, "Well don't give it to me."

When I played Under 16 cricket, there was a guy in our team who would often say, whenever one of our bowlers bowled a couple of deliveries which preplexed the opposition batsman, "You've got him in all sorts of licorice now."

In relation to being asked whether you've had a haircut:
"Yes, I've had many hairs cut."

If you accidentally knock something over or break something not too valuable:
"And now for my next trick."

If a friend or spouse asks you to put the dog/cat out:
"Why, is it on fire?"

If you're a male about to temporarily leave a group of friends in order to have a tinkle:
"I'll be back in two shakes."

A response to use to someone greeting you when you come back to work after an absence. Should they say, "Hey, you're back!", you respond, "Yes. I made parole."

When standing next to a step ladder, "This is my step ladder. My real ladder left home when I was a small boy."

More chins than a chinese phonebook :)

Also I have a rough as guts uncle (he lives in the 'outback', never seen him wearing a shirt and also he has a glass eye.) Just to set the picture of this guy, his favorite saying is, 'Dry as a dead dingos donger'. Maybe my favorite saying of all time.

For ugly people you meet:
“makes sin look cute”

For soft people:
“Soft as a lemonade sandwich”

For a close call:
“By the skin of hen’s teeth”

One I've often used when a mate pulls off a fluky shot in a game of pool or snooker:
"You practice that shot a lot do you mate?"
