"That doesn't make any sense."
"I don't know what you're talking about."
"It's this whole thing" = explanation is too complicated for me to currently explain, I use this one a lot
"It's a distinct possibility" = that'll probably happen
"CHUD" = pasty, mouth breather, videogame/internet addict, doesn't go outside, socially inept, (I've known many CHUDS)
"Kid" = I call people kid. A lot. It doesn't even matter if they're older than me. Typically in the form of "what are you talking about
kid?" an expression of disagreement and disbelief
"chief, buddy, slick, guy, boss, killer, ace, and bro" = Generic term for a male human, I use them when I'm being condescending towards someone and don't wish to hide it, purposely trying to annoy someone
"gofuckyaself" the universal rebuttal
- *blank stare*
- *blink eyes at 5 second intervals*
- *open mouth, hold up a finger*
- *look for the exit, leave/escape, speedily, swiftly, and/or stealthily*
[silent catch phrases, hurray] *arm raise, wide grin*
"Take it easy."
When playing Gomer Pyle: "I reckon [insert statement here]."
I don't think I have any "catch-phrases." Do I need them? What are they good for?
Do things said at work everyday count? (I mean stuff like, "How can I be of help to you today?")
I tend to use these the most
"yeah sure, whatever"
I have also been using "so, there is that" a lot recently. Kind of an acknowledgement that the situation in question is not ideal. Like, "Well, I ended up with the used model because they were out of the new ones." "So...there is that." I think I may have bastardized this from the Caddyshack line, "So, I got that going for me. Which is nice."
"Naturally..." *smart-ass, you-don't-know-what-the-hell-you-are-talking-about tone*
"I'm not sure, I will see if I'm feelin' it..." (mostly when someone asks me to make plans more than 24 hours in advance)
"I just got bamboozled into [insert activity here]!"
I don't have catch phrases - just non sequiturs.
They are also all pop culture references that people in my crew hear me say.
"More like BOR-ophyll" - yes I'm ashamed to quote Adam Sandler but this is one of my standard replies when I interrupt someone blathering.
"Oh really? I wrote a hit play, so I'm not sweating it either" from Rushmore. I use this when someone does something really impressive and makes me feel woefully inadequate.
"I like things that are great. Good things are fantastic" Alec Baldwin doing his Tony Bennett kills me every time.
"Hodor" - just a random place holder until I decide "yes" or "no"
"How much you wanna bet I can throw this football over them mountains?" - I use this when someone vastly overestimates their ability to do a task.
