Noodling catfish is frowned upon in this establishment. Well, hopefully, every establishment.

Did you know that "Canoodling catfish is taboo" is an anagram for "Oh, a cannibalistic dog's foot"?

A church sign I saw from the highway:

"Don't be just full, be thankful."

If my car had been five years older, I'd've taken it out.

An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.

You knit with thread? That must be quite the challenge. Do you use knitting toothpicks?

Yarn is thread. I don't really knit. Occasionally I nit-pick, though.

Nit-picking is nasty!

That means to pick lice eggs off your (or somebody's) dirty head! :yuck:

I think you may have it backwards. Yarn is a type of thread, unless you believe all threads are made of yarn. I’ve had loose threads on shirts that are certainly not made from yarn.
