    The best one that my Grandad used was, just as you were leaving he would say "may you be half hour in heaven before the devil knows your dead".
    Another one that springs to mind was when the ice cream van came around the street, my Dad used to say "if you heard the bells ringing on the ice cream van, it means he has sold out"!

    No use saying..’eat you crusts and you’ll have curly hair’ in an age where most girls seem to use hair straighteners. My mum always used to say ‘I may be cabbage looking but I’m not green’. Lolly’s mate..was your Grandad Irish? It just sounds like Irish humour to me; something I can imagine one of my Irish chums saying……

    Some from my chldhood:

    Have you potatoes growing in your ears. (for not hearing properly)

    Were you born in a barn (for leaving doors open)

    Turn on/off the Big Light (see Peter Kay)

    Eat or do x and it will put hairs on your chest

    I had a habit in my teenage years to park myself in front of the TV when my parents were trying to watch it,hence my fathers saying ‘You make a better door than window!’
