An old colleague of mine used to have a frequent saying when he was out on the pull which I think was his own invention;
"Faint heart never f*cked fat tart".

He was from one of them rough, grim Northern places... Ilkeston if I remember rightly.

One I use on managers who can't be arsed to think and/or make a decision "What would you do if it were your chip shop?"

'I'm a busy man, I havnt got time '

I use this occasionally when I'm sitting in the canteen and someone approaches me.

The usual reply is....
'Yer right :smile: '

Once, when talking with my flatmate (who also happened to be my colleague) about a particularly grim bike ride I'd had, I described fighting the headwind as a real "head down, arse up" kind of effort.

When he was temporarily put in charge while our manager was off, he saw fit to use my description to motivate the rest of the team.
Devoid of the context of cycling into a headwind, to an audience of predominantly women not-cyclists, it got the kind of reaction you might expect.

When you smile, the whole world thinks you're deranged.

Flattery will get you arrested.

You can tell a lot about a fishmonger by his handshake.

I'll sleep when I'm dead. Urrgghh, arrgghg, gurgle, thump!

Count your blessings. They sell for good money on ebay.

The enemy of my enemy is me.
