Cis: Here Comes The Next Big Catch Phrase

Full post here

I think the next catch phase is going to be: I AM OFF THE CLOCK. … There is a movie coming out, with George Clooney, I think it is called the Good German. And I was watch TV this morning and they had a clip from it. Not sure what it was about to be honest. I think it was the Clooney characters driver, who made the remark. And then Clooney, turns his head, and catches (what we are told is his old girlfriend) a woman’s face. He calls her by name. There is pain in both of their eyes, and she too, says the phase … I AM OFF THE CLOCK TOO … I like that. I wonder … if I tell the King that, when he asks me to get him something. Something that I think he should get up off the chair to get himself. Hmm … Cis Gors/From A Simple Mind.

DFO: The current phrase du jour is “Threw him/her under the bus” or “Kick him/her to the curb.” KXLY threw Dick Haugen under the bus. Ditto for Tom Luna and the 20 pink slips sent out to the Department of Education. Spokane County voters kicked Commissioner Phil Harris to the curb.

Question: So, has the next catch phrase begun to emerge?
