Q is for Questions


Q is for Questions- the kind that don't really need answers... the rhetorical kind.

Who clipped your ears and made you skipper?  - what you're really saying - What makes you think you're the boss!

What are ya after doin' now? - what you're really saying - Somethings wrong and you did it!

Don't think I got either mouth on me? - what you're really saying - You got food for yourself, but forget about getting some for me!

Are you catching flies? -what you're really saying - Close your mouth, you looks stupid!

    We always use the line from MST3K that refers to someone who is downer - "Who died and made you Droopy?"

  5. That second one sounds familiar, but for some reason I'm hearing it in more of an Irish accent. :)

  9. Love your graphic, little green man. The only one of those questions I've ever heard of is the last...people do look stupid with their mouths open. Sometimes I see people driving their cars that way and wonder if they get all dried out and thirsty.

  10. The second one, "What are ya after doin' now?" is definitely Irish in tone.

  11. I loved the skipper one, primarily because the minute I read it I knew what it meant and laughed out loud. I love all of these phrases Bay Girl and would love to use them too!

    1. Gordon Pinsent chances are has said them all - but his accent is pretty washed off
