I love the phrase "TWO BULLS IN A PASTURE" - meaning, two people at fierce odds or competition with each other.

  Also, I like the terminology of "attaching one's self to another's leg" - a spoof on that sad hobby that some dogs engage in.

When asked, "How are you?", a former coworker of mine would always respond, "Finer than frog hair.".

One says... "Take it easy"

Another responds ...."If it is easy I'll take it twice"

"Finer then frog hair" is a good one...I use that often actually.  Actually it is typically a toss-up between that response and simply stating "peachy".

Some good ones guys.  I get annoyed with "how are you?' all the time by people that don't even know me.  I often answer "peachy".

My dad always used the "useless as tits on a boar" line.

Here are 2 that I like.

Lower than a snake's belly in a wagon wheel rut.

I had a friend who was 6' 7" and was frequently asked "How's the weather up there?" His response... spit on their heads and say "It's raining".

I don't really use any, but my father in law uses these frequently:

Colder than a well-digger's ass in the Yukon.

Raining harder than a cow peeing on a flat rock.

You can pay more but you can't buy better.
