I wasn’t born off the turnip truckPosted: December 7, 2013
This masterpiece is a blend of “wasn’t born yesterday” and “fallen off the turnip truck”, the former describing someone who is not naiive or easily fooled and the latter someone who is unsophisticated or ignorant. I think this would be a good one to say when you REALLY want to let someone know you are aware of what is going on. Or if you really were born off a turnip truck. And if that’s the case, I would always root for you. Thanks to Brad Stone for uttering this unintentional malaphor and to his wife Char for sending it in!
