OK Mastodon, for a pontential project, I need old catchphrases from pop culture. ("Old" is subjective). Maybe the phrases make no sense out of context, or they're not funny retrospectively, or they're just plain bizarre. Examples:

"That's gonna leave a mark!"

"Where's the beef?"

"Kiss my grits!"

"That's gotta hurt!"

"Talk to the hand!"

"Sit and spin!"

What have you got? I'll take anything, from any decade!

@klaatu *breathes deeply*
- "Hasta la vista, baby."
- "Don't have a cow, man!"
- "Oh, boy..."
- "I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass. And I'm all out of bubble gum."
- "I know kung-fu!"
- "Hack the planet!"
- "I'll buy that for a dollar!"
- "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn!"
- "Mathematical!"
- "'Tis but a scratch!"
- "My God! It's full of stars!"
- "Oooohhhhh, Ffffffuuuuudggggee!"
- "It's a major award!"
- "You'll shoot your eye out."
- "I'm lovin' it!"

....shall I go on? 😉

I love it when a plan comes together.
I pity the fool.
Not gonna do it. Not at this juncture.

Call me mint jelly coz i'm on the lamb. Abe Simpson.

@klaatu "Depends on what your definition of "is" is."

"The Juice is loose!"

"Scratch my back with a hacksaw!"

"Attention K-Mart shoppers."

"Shop smart - shop S-Mart!"

@drwho @klaatu

"Sit on it"

"What's up doc?"

"What a marooon! What an ignora-moose!"

@mwlucas @drwho @klaatu

"pow! right in the kisser!"

"gag me with a spoon"

"up your nose with a rubber hose"

What's up, doc?
