funny sayings could they be true,?
« on: January 14, 2022, 08:15:51 am »
Its a funny thing when ever our ears go red and then some one or other will say some ones talking about you,

when some one sneezes, comes the saying once a kiss twice a wish and so on ,

if some one trips up then comes that person must have two left feet.

Q; what do you remember  of these sayings and waht else do you recall,

always say 'Good morning, Mr. Magpie' when you see one - come to think of it, I haven't seen a magpie anywhere close in years

Always thought it an illogical contradiction in terms

I get confused with the ‘Black cat crossing your path is lucky’..
Yet others will say ‘Black cat is unlucky ‘..
 My mum would tell us kids when we told fibs..
‘ You need a good memory to be a good liar’..
Don’t ask me.. I know nuffink..

Mentioned that in PF a while back - favourite saying of my paternal grandfather who, as far as I am aware, never ventured north of Bermondsey in his life
