Cliché List of the Day

It is generally best to avoid clichés, but some are useful in describing something (instant recognition could help you communicate more effectively). However, avoid cliché's that don't mean anything, at all, what-so-ever, such as:
  • Another Day-Another Dollar
  • Soup to Nuts
  • Stuff the Sausage
  • One bird in the hand is better than two in the bush
  • As easy as pie
  • Have your cake and eat it too
As with every List of the Day, I'm sure we missed plenty, add yours to the comments

I like traffic cliches...

Like when observing everyone driving slow around you, saying, "Hm, must be National Slow Day!"

Or when the light changes, and the person in front isn't paying attention, "It ain't gonna get any greener!"

There's more, but I can't think of them right now.

"how do you like them apples?" huh? apples? who has apples?

cliche or not, it's still my favorite line from Good Will Hunting.

How about "a day late and a dollar short"

I am personally opposed to any and all variations of, "That's the way the cookie crumbles."

Because, basically, what they're saying is, "You have been dealt great hardship, but you shouldn't care, because I sure don't."
