Almost everyone coins or uses expressions that make sense to only a few people. What word or phrase do you use most often that you have to explain the meaning of to others?

The one I'm the proudest of is from the early 90s, and this was used before Joss Whedon used it. I'm proud of it because almost all of my circle of friends started using it instantly:

"He's a good guy, but his Kung Fu is poor..."

I know it from The X-Files (Lone Gunmen). Unusual Suspects.

I got it from a crapload of badly dubbed HK movies I was watching at the time. I blame Colin Geddes.

That's awesome! I'm so adopting it. It's perfect for several work situations I can think of.

Mine was: "If he doesn't like it, he can chew rocks."

I don't think mine made it to Joss Whedon or X-Files though. :)

A "shrubbery", for a memorably bad comedy act, named for some idiot called Alan Shrub who Ann and I saw at Birmingham Town Hall in the 1980s. I really should write that night up for a fanzine sometime.
