This used to be my dad's go to exclamation (he never cussed in front of us kids) when something went wrong...

*breaks glass*

"Horse feathers!!"

If something as blatantly wrong- "That's a bunch of horse hockey!"

If he wished someone were to just go away- "That dude can go fly a kite!"

If someone asked how he was doing- "Fair to partly cloudy" or "Finer than frog hair!"


My dad was a regular fount of the off the wall/goofy spoken word... I'm sure some of y'all had fathers much the same way... what are some of the good ones from back in your younger years?

I really wonder where the hell my dirty mouth comes from...neither of my parents really ever cursed in front of me

I was 16 when my mom dropped the F bomb for the first time in front of me...I about passed out

Depended on what I did and the level of response.
Something school related that only garnered some feedback- "good grief son"
Paint my room with some paint I found- "Godamighty, have you lost your mind"
