VINTAGE SAYINGS

Great post by The Décor Lounge – “We’ve always had a soft spot for those folks who know how to turn a phrase. Admit it – our current day vernacular is just not as colourful as the old days. So if your dogs are barking, take a load off, grab a cup of joe and a sinker (donut) and open your peepers to read some of our faves that we think are just swell. It’s a juicy post that will have you shouting ‘murder’! (1930′s slang for ‘Wow’!)

 

I guess it depends on the company you keep, but I think I could challenge that our current day vernacular can be just as colourful – unfortunately, more often than not, it also tends to be off-colour!  Some listed here are probably much too sweet to survive in today’s street smart culture.
