Wow! It sounds like I (and many others) missed a hell of a weekend!

I'm not a fig plucker nor a fig pluckers son, but I'll pluck the figs till the fig plucker comes.

I know a row of ten of these tongue twisters we used as a drinking game man that was a long time ago.

SIZE-O-METER:  Size; as in TO GAUGE, to measure, distance and girth
   "O"; as in surprise,  as in  startling METER; as in to add up, to feed, a unit of measure. 

SIZE O METER- a unit of measure that you feed to gauge its girth and size which makes one scream in startling surprise "O"

Believe it or not

   If you think that fig plucker was bad, you should have been around when a bunch of us guys were discussing the proper procudure of doing the laundry. We could all agree on how to restore a Vette, but could not agree on how to do the wash. Go figure.

   Butch, we appreciate you kindness about the birthday cake, but we can not take the credit for it. It was someone else's idea. The Honda was for delivery purposes only. (Comes in handy once in awhile, don't it)

Hey Jim,
Isn't that what Red Green says, "If the girls can't find you good looking, at least they can find you handy"?
The birthday party was such a great team effort..and a real surprize!

Thanks Larry but that's not the way I recited that poem at The Cruise-in, (and I was stone cold sober). I would show you but this is a family site.LOL
 
Also if I would have had you and your size-o-meter definition there with me , it wouldn't have taken so long for all those "Ding Dongs" to guess it in a game of Catch Phrase.Confused
