What are some of the weirdest phrases/quotes you have ever heard?

My list:

-" I was never born..."
-" That's so cray-cray!"
- " You say tomato, I say tomato."
- " Life is like a box of chocolates."
- " Baby cakes!"

People have told you they were never born? That's weird... If what you've listed are the strangest things said to you, your life has been a privileged one! I've heard/read so much insane nonsense in my short-life it's any wonder I haven't bumped myself off yet. I don't have any specific quotes on-hand but some of Tumblr's odder ideology comes to mind, people who claim they have the soul of a squirrel or are "trans-ethnic".

Oh, Megan Fox being cast as April O'neil was referred to as "a gift from God" by Sharkblade, though I'm paraphrasing. That takes the cake.

I'm sure I've got some good ones, but off the top of my head... not so much at the moment.

Don't have an exact quote, but the biggest one I can currently recall is once years ago my sister told us that a friend of her had seriously believed that the sun and the moon were the same thing; the sun simply went down at night, cooled off, and came back up. They were already a little past high school when I heard about this...

On that note.

Forbes: "'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Is One Of The Most Feminist Films Of 2014"

And we should be thankful for Fox and the film, remember, it's a blessing.

Lol seriously? If I was a woman I'd take offence to that statement by Forbes.

I did and do find that claim to be very absurd. Esp considering there were the likes of "Divergent" and another "Hunger Games" out the same year. I mean, come on. And they based it on what, Megan Fox? Really?

And as much as I appreciate films that have women in good, central roles - TMNT is not where I want it. TMNT is free to focus all on the boys, that's just fine...as long as it's the right boys.

As a woman I'm more offended by Hollywood making it possible for the Forbes comment to be a defensible position.

On Fleek.
That one I only get because of context, but have no idea where it stems from.

My Mom was a huge fan of "Save it for the Marines", but I never did get an explanation as to where it came from, nor why they would be any more interested in listening to my nonsense than she was.

Kind of cheating here, but I once knew someone who said that "it's a doggy-dog world" instead of "dog-eat-dog."

Well, maybe she thought it'd be a good career path for you. Serving in the armed forces is quite a stable career, isn't it?

"Six and one half dozen of the other" - I know what it means, but it strikes me as a needlessly long way to say 'it doesn't matter'.

It's actually a tiny bit more specific than that. It's an expression used to describe a situation where two things are being contrasted in spite of an overwhelming sameness. "Six of one, half a dozen of the other" literally means, "Despite what it seems, it's the same either way."

Which is kind of like saying simply, "It doesn't matter", but it's not as broad. More specifically it would mean, "It doesn't matter because it's the same either way," but again, it's the context of usage that's important.

That said, like any good saying, lots of people muddy the waters by using it in places it doesn't belong and that messes things up a bit.

That's a very good point. I suppose I oversimplified its meaning to make a glib observation. I shall contemplate this on the Tree of Woe.

I have another one... 'Since Adam jazzed'.

My grandmother used to say this all the time; e.g. "I've had this hat since Adam jazzed". It's a variation of 'Since Adam was a boy/lad', but I'm not too clear on where jazz fits in. Maybe an Australian thing, or an Irish Catholic thing, or an Australian Irish Catholic thing... or an old person thing.
