A phrase I use at work with some friends: You want a free blanket? or just muttering the words free blankets.
Basically a reference to the smallpox blankets and clothing given to the Natives back when settlers showed up here in America.  Mentioned during a conversation with my Mexican friend who is p**sed off at Columbus.  I mentioned the blankets to him and he started laughing when I told him we gave them free blankets.  So every day when I walk into work, he just looks at me and goes "You bring me any free blankets today, Italiano?"

Mamaluke- essentially, it means 'moron.'

My family used this one too . . . but mostly when a lot of my old Italian relatives were still alive . . .
So, you're the other person who knows that word.  I mentioned to about 100 people and NOBODY had any idea what I'm talking about.   TeddyR

I've heard it in movies and on TV shows too.  For example, I'm sure they used it several times in THE SOPRANOS.  People who aren't familiar with it probably don't notice it or simply ignore it when they hear it.

I've wanted to reply to this topic so badly, but my family is pretty well vanilla in the ways of special sayings...

Except for Eggnogaroni (portmanteau of Egg Nog and macaroni). 

Eggnogaroni- Accidentally created bad food. 

The origin of this comes from a ham dinner my mother made one night for a large group.  She decided to make some Kraft mac n' cheese as a side dish.  For some reason, it came out a funny color, had a gritty texture, and tasted somewhat sweet, but mostly bland.  Someone thought she put something in it other than milk.  She argued fervently that she used milk.  She knows she did because she grabbed the the first carton in the door.  I looked in the fridge and saw the first carton in the door was Darigold Eggnog.  She has not heard the end of it to this day.

One between me and sister; When ever someone says their going to do something, for example "I'm going to go watch a movie," you reply "People die, every day, watching movies..."

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
