User:Hippietrail/Silly phrases which should not be in a serious dictionary
Most of the entries here I feel are paraphrases, circumlocutions, periphrastic, or transparent phrases which are understood by looking up there component words, and do not appear in any monolingual print dictionary I know of. Many I have submitted for RFD in the past. There’s even some I created in my naivete or to illustrate the sillyness.
