"Pie in the sky dreams".
There's no pie in any sky, and people who dream about pie in the sky are probably nuts. Are we sure it wasn't originally simply: "High in the sky dreams"?

"Let freedom ring".
Freedom doesn't ring. Freedom is a state of being. If it's about some bell, there's no mention of it. Are we sure it wasn't originally: "Let freedom reign"?

"Sakes alive!"
This makes no sense; the words 'sakes' and 'alive' have nothing to do with each other. Are we sure it wasn't originally: "Saints alive!"?

Who's got more of these sayings? I think we need to have a better look at them.
“Its not over til the fat lady sings”
Who was this fat woman and could she really sing? What song did she sing?

lol bet you knew enough about it not to screw with dad when his ass was frosted though didnt ya?
Yea but I still don't get it. Frost my ass?? His ass??

And he used to say "well I'll kiss your ass" too until the day I was 14 or so and dropped my pants and said "go for it." He was laughing too hard at that point to beat on me.

My Grandma used to say, "A cat to make kitten britches" when someone said, "What for?". Used to confuse the hell out of me as a kid, but now I get it. I always remember her laughing when I'd say, "That doesn't make any sense!"

You have to think of it like, "What fur."
