    The worst part is that I don't try to use the cliches, they just come out.

    I sometimes give trainings on the products I now sell to the retail industry. Part of my training is always a translation piece (as a way to break the ice)...

    That dog won't hunt ....... I think we can come up with a better idea
    Putting lipstick on a pig won't make it a prom queen..... speaking about a bad idea in a very good way still makes it a bad idea.
    Thirsty enough to make a tree beg for a dog... Boy, I would like a drink of water
    I would jump on that like a hobo on a ham sandwich... I really like that idea.
    You're licking the outlet again hoping for healing.... maybe you should seek the aid of a qualified mental health professional rather than trying to fix it yourself

    Give me time, I am sure I have more...

      Those are really, really funny.

      I hope your accent does not get in the way.

      Once, while in the military, we were told to pull out our manual and make a correction. The instructor, from the Deep South, said something about a "Heel" and that the altitude on it was incorrect. It took me a minute to figure out that he meant a hill and not a heel (which I could find nowhere on the map).

      Where in the South are you?

        I didn't learn "you don't have a dog in this fight" until I lived in Texas.
