Groucho Marx's reply to "Have a nice day" was , "I'll have any damn day I please."

A tip if "I'll try ......" isn't your fave.

Put a small object in the upturned, flat palm of your hand and ask them to "Try and take it."
Usually they'll take it.
Tell them they failed the experiment,'cos you didn't ask them to "take it", then pause a bit to see when the penny drops.

"at the end of the day" seems to crop up frequently now in youngspeak.


I recently heard a schoolgirl, who had been thinking about dodging class, say "but at the end of the day I just got up and went to school"

Basically, a teen-age through twenties phenomenon, but it's creeping up the age scale:

". . . like. . . ." every third or fourth word.

And ". . . you know. . . ." every third of fourth word is another one. "If you assume that I already know, then why are you telling me?"

What's silly about inquiring over empty seats? The person might have gone to the loo.
'Do you want a smack' just goes to show that mothers are the original Dirty Harries (or Harriets).

Someone comes up to me in a public place and asks:

"Is that seat saved?"

I have two potential answers:

1: "No, but we're praying for it."

and

2: "Yes, we've been saving it just for you."

Said frequently by people pointing at a vacant seat: "Is someone sitting there ?"

Said frequently in Scotland when opening the front door to callers: "Come away in."

Said frequently by naughty mothers to naughty children: "Do you want a smack ?"

Said frequently by my mother when getting into car in hot weather: "Oooh, it's like stepping into a hot oven." (How many times did she ever do that ?)

re: "Live Recording" While all recordings start off live, not all of them end up that way. Live Recording is generally reserved for when they set up in front of an audience, roll tapes, do a performance, and release it as is. The alternative is multiple takes, editting, dubbing, etc., to end up with a recording that sounds (thoretically) better, but doesn't necessarily reflect a performance.

I like it when people are approaching their stop on the bus or train and turn to each other and say

"Is this us?"

Announcements in live broadcasting have always gone wrong. I think it was Stewart Hibberd who said, 'Tonight we have a unique occasion, the first Party Political Broadcast on BBC radio, Here is the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir Stifford Crapps.'

re: "Live in Concert" In this neck of the woods one of the popular events is the "Pink Floyd Laser Light Show." They rent out a place and play Pink Floyd CDs over the PA while having a live laser show. So while the audience is listening to Pink Floyd, they are definitely not In Concert.
Also, it is not uncommon for a venue to simulcast an event as it happens on their big screen TV. So while you could go see, say, Tina Turner In Concert, it is not Live at that venue. So at least around here there is a difference between "In Concert" and "Live, in Concert"

Just listened to a song by Mike Waterson, about his friend who found Jesus, he said Jesus liked him so well he took him away. If there was a ' Jesus ' he wouldnt let children and BABIES starve to death in Niger.

God is not love, it's a myth.
