"Play stupid games, win stupid prizes" is over-used.
Boss as fuck. No wait, I like that one, it truly is boss as fuck.
To actually add to the original gripe of the thread I will second “who”, not that clever and overused.
Also second “lost in a boating accident” funny in Peter Benchley’s day but pretty lame now.

Perhaps on this forum. I found the few times I've used in person, it tends to catch people off guard and garner a laugh as if it were new to them.

QFT. QFE. All day, everyday, and twice on Sundays. Someone get this man a prize. I agree with you.
Wait, I know, I just need to link you guys to urbandictionary.com. They’ve already had this conversation, it’ll save you guys some typing.
Compared to expressions that have been floating around for thousands of years that are no more complex or deeply thought out, I think some of these examples are hilarious. The first example, “If [I] made the story up, no one would believe it,” is a far more complicated concept than “I am what I am,” and yet both properly convey a message.
That we can communicate is a gift. Learning to do so clearly and carefully is an achievement. And yes, it can even be done by borrowing an arrangement of words when someone has put it better than you feel able or willing to put the energy into at the time. Trite? Perhaps. But if the alternative is “find something new to say in a new way or don’t say it,” then I’m going to continue to blather my unoriginalities.
And PSA is good only if you're talking about the online dealer.

Great thread John!
