Cowabunga! Say this if something is exciting news.

Whooee Biz Bag! Something is stinky or disgusting.

Stop crying or I will give you something to cry about! This is a threat that is supposed to sober up the tears – usually worked the opposite way.

You are full of prunes! Say this if someone is telling tall tails or is talking trash.

You are gonna get a poke in the nose! A threat of bodily harm that sounds scary.

It’s a lead pipe cinch… something is bound to happen.

For crying out loud… FCOL in modern text talk.

That’s a crock! If something is stupid, unreasonable, or unfair.

Tadadump, tadadump, tadadump dump dump! On the way to the dump and happy about it.

Great Day! Very good news or happenings of especially good proportions.

Gracious! Said to exclaim but have time to think through how one really feels.
