I heard most of those while growing up and #25 has even come back to haunt me in the form of my daughter! I-yi-yi, when she hits her teen years things might get interesting around here.

those are the ones I heard most as a kid! I have flashbacks of #10 to this day...only with lima beans, blech. I used to try making piles of them in various parts of my plate and hiding them under the scraps from whatever else was on my plate, but she always knew :hmph:

Thanks for that Marie, very funny!
