Quite true Smudge - that is until the last day is reached and then it becomes a brilliant phrase. Not that I was ever the subject of that particular phrase but the one reference ROPs is fairly similar. :D

How about:

It pays to be a winner!

ARMY left\right.

Start cutting about.

At the speed of a thousand gazelles.

In my day..... (when said by anyone with over 5 years left still to serve - this is your day you oaf!)

Carry on normal jogging (what is abnormal jogging?).

If it aint raining it aint training. (Yes it is)

If it aint snowing we aint going. (Really? Bet we are pal)
