    In texas we have a lot of slang expressions.Like getting your ass kicked. That would mean generally someone beating you up, you lost in a fight with someone. Your most posterior parts might never had someone's foot against it during the battle. Or in it either as it is sometimes said.Or their foot broken off inside your backside either. However, one must avoid at all costs getting their ass kicked. Or getting a mudhole stomped in it.

    Back when I lived in Kansas, I recall the local powers-that-be were getting fed-up with Kansas being referred to as "Flyover country", that boring stretch for the LA-NYC commuting elitists.

    They soon adopted the state slang, or logo:

    "Linger Longer"...

    One of our favorites north of the 49th.

  8. Cold as a witches' tit,
  9. If something is pointless or hopeless:
    - you might as well save your breath to cool your porridge, you're pissin' into the wind on that one, you haven't got a snowball's chance in a blast furnace there boy, I sure hope you've got a Plan B.

    If something is useless or non-functional:
    - as dead as a door nail, useless as a milk bucket under a bull.

    that is actually a real event.Sailing ships centuries ago that had cannons had cannon balls piled up on a rack.The rack was called a brass monkey.If it was frigid enough outside the balls would get so cold they rolled off the rack.

    My all time favourite ;- Useless --- About as useful as a chocolate tea pot. Also as much use as tits on a Bull.
    A good fit ---Like a rat up a drain

    If you dont like the weather just wait a few minutes.Its either too hot too cold too wet or too windy in texas. That can be all in 1 day.

    Of a good deal, "Now that's a gonga". I heard it came from a local TV commercial. Of the heat in the summer, Is it hot enough for ya?, or before the Monsoon season , "But it's a dry heat"
