Would I be forgiven if I posted a Four liner here?

Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a gift
That's why it is called the present.

A saying that was used a lot when i was construction sub-contracting.

Sometimes Peanuts, Sometimes Shells

Of course this was used when referring to different contractors pay scales.

My 17yrs old son says this when referring to something useless.

"As useful as a trapdoor in a lifeboat"

Fran, around here, I've always heard that saying as "About as helpful as a trapdoor in a submarine". I don't know why. And looking at it typed out, that really doesn't make any sense.

Hey Linda. A trapdoor is usually a hinged door in a ceiling or floor (or stage) to get out of the area - like an escape hatch! If you're in a submarine (underwater) or are in a lifeboat (on top of the water) a trapdoor would only lead you to the water and in either case this would probably not be very useful or helpful.

Fran, I've had to thinkabout it, but what my dad used to say is "About as useful as a screen-door on a submarine". That's a funnier to me.

Happyrck, that's a good one.

Yes, that is a funny one Linda, and rings true for me ... coming from Oz with all the flies we endure every summer the screen door is a must (specifically it being closed when someone walks in or out!). Next chance I get I'll use that one to my son!

About as useful as an ashtry on a motorbike
about as useful as a fart in a spacesuit
about as useful as a one-legged man in an arse kicking contest

and the finale:
about as useful as a woman with a driver's license
