That is a pretty good one!

I hardly use any colloquialisms or localised idioms any more... (as I got out of the habit when I left school and moved into the civilised world where no-one understood them!) but there are some pretty good ones that are quite local to me:

'Not enough room to swing a cat' = a small room/car/house

'Were you born in a barn?' = close the door

'Went arse over ****.' = fell over

'Fur coat and no knickers.' = they have/are nothing, but they think have/are

'You're as much use as a one legged man at an arse-kicking contest.' = Self explanatory.

'I've seen better legs on a table'. = She is not great looking.

'You make a better door than a window.' = Move, you're blocking my view.

'I bet you could eat an apple through a barbed wire fence.' = Wow they are big teeth.
