... they want their insults back.
I was surfing along on a message board today, and found that people are STILL using the tired cliché, "the _________ called, he/she/it wants his/her/its __________ back."
Oh don't get me wrong, I've used the shit out of that phrase... it was a good and fairly hurtful insult for a long time. For instance: "Goodwill called, and they want their couch back." (bad tie reference) Or, "Some clowns called and want their car back." (Ford Festiva reference) But the point is, I used it in the early 90's.
Am I all wrong here? Is it still a timely, valid, effective insult? Please feel free to opine, and also leave your favorite one - because if it's still usable, I'm going to get back on this horse for a while.
Or, feel free to share other outdated clichés you've heard lately.
By the way, is that a cell phone in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? (that is sooo early 40's)
