    Sometimes I get an urge for a tooterfish popkin but they always hang up on me when I try to order it.

    I say "Mayhap" a lot. I make my 6 year old daughter crack up by just randomly singing "We got chickens in the barn, who's barn, what barn, my barn". I used "They have forgotten then faces of their Fathers" to my wife describe some characters in a movie we were watching. She had no idea what I was talking about.

    I was upset with someone once for being a jerk to me, and I told him that he had forgotten the face of his father. That stopped the argument we were having because he left me alone and went home. Later, when he called to apologize, he said telling him that made him stop and think about how he'd been acting lately. He had never felt more ashamed because it was true. He was not being the better man he had always hoped to be. He said I was profound.....
    I said, well yes I am but Stephen King wrote that so....

    Oh yeah! Another one I use: When I'm absolutely laid to waste after the end of some major ordeal I say, "I have ronked my last ronk!"

    I particularly like "Yer Bugger" as a stand-in for a cuss. I use the word "trig" and often call people "pert" and suggest that they "strap one on when appropriate". "SSDD" is a good one, there are just so many. I am a vernacular sponge and can't help but to absorb local sayings, accents and literary references from books I read, sometimes I don't even know where the stuff I say comes from.
    Same here. I use, with varying degrees of regularity, "tooter popkin," "that one had a lump in it," and many more. Some unconsciously. If I do something I feel icky about, I say to myself (in my head), "You ain't no nice guy."

    ...not that I'm proud of it, but I have on more than one occasion at work-employed the terminology "Dump Bitc*!"....
