"Darker than the inside of a bruised crow."

6. ANYTHING uttered by Dan Rather...
http://politicalhumor.about.com/library/blratherisms.ht...

"I think you would likelier see a hippopotamus run through this room than see George Bush appoint Ralph Nader to the Cabinet."

"None of this television mumbo jumbo, let's get in there and count the votes."

"Frankly we don't know whether to wind the watch or to bark at the moon."

"We've lived by the crystal ball, we're eating so much broken glass. We're in critical condition."

8. It wonders me
It's a fine Pennsylvania Dutch phrase, but when i use it here people look at me funny. But then, my wife looks at me REAL funny when I tell here that "I might could do something."

Gey kahk in ze meer - "Go shit in the sea!" -- Go do something meaningless
Nit dos iz sheyn, vos iz sheyn, nor dos, vos es gefelt -- Beautiful is not what is beautiful, but what one likes.
Der mentsh trakht, un Got lakht -- "A man thinks, and God laughs" (literal).
Vos noenter tsu der shul, alts vayter fun Got -- "The nearer to the school (synogogue or church), the further from God".

There's more. Oh, yes, many more!
