Butter My Buns And Call Me A Biscuit #socs

Never once in my life have I uttered the expression "golly gee," so you’ll excuse me if I did a little research before at least attempting this little missive. Our friends at The Urban Dictionary tell us it’s "used in a satirical statement when somebody is treating you like a child."

Maybe not so much as a child as an idiot, and there are better expressions for that…

  • Thank you, Captain Obvious!
  • Duh!
  • No shit, Batman! (Or "No shit, Sherlock!" if you were born in one of those jurisdictions)

Do you ever make yourself laugh so hard that you forget what you ewre going to say? Somehow seeing the words "No shit, Batman!" sent me into gales of laughter.

Learned something else: "Golly," "gosh," and "gee" are all substitute words for God (or in the case of "gee," Jesus). I think I knew that somehow. "Geez" is another one. My little buddy Blake, who’s starring in the story I’m writing and will probably neither finish nor get published (I think I’m doing it mostly for my own amusement) uses "geez" a lot.

The title, by the way, is an expression a friend of mine used to use a lot.

        1. If you have a breadmaker, most recipes call for powdered milk. Given the shortages brought on by the supply-chain issues (about which little is being done in Washington), it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to have some on hand.

          1. Oh, yes, now that you mention it, when we had a breadmaker we did use powdered milk. We haven’t made bread in years. Thanks for the encouragement to be prepared, you’re on to something about the lack of assistance to reverse the issues at hand.

  1. I love sayings like that. I posted sayings from the seventies and had a good time finding them. I love Bubbles in your picture.
    You should publish it John…you never know.

  2. I experienced those same gales of laughter. Iโ€™m of the Sherlock jurisdiction. You should participate in WRiTE Club. All anonymous. Tons of fun. Or serious business โ€ฆ for some. You could amuse us all ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. “Bless Your Heart” is another one, that comes from down south a ways. I understand, although it sounds nice, that to Southerners (some) it means “Aw %$# you dick weed” or something. Regional ‘cussin” is fascinating! Great post John! ๐Ÿ™‚
