6 of None or One of the Other

So you know that saying that goes something along the lines of Six of One or Half a Dozen....whatever whatever....yeah, I can't ever get it right but for whatever reason I insist on using it ALL THE TIME.

It always just seems to fit but then doesn't fit at all because I end up totally screwing it up. Why can't I just say "Either way" or "50/50"? No, I try to use the egg one every time and end up saying stuff like this:

Six Of One or None of Another

Six of One or Another of Another

One of the Six or One of the Other

Six of None or One of the Other

Six of a Ton and Lots of the Other

Do you see what I'm getting at here? So if you ever happen to give me two options that are pretty much the same and won't really make a difference to me either way, just be prepared for one of the above responses.

And good luck trying to correct me. What's it matter anyway? It's All of One or Half of the Other, anyway ;)

That, by far, is the funniest post YET!

Why don't you just really throw them off and say, "Don't count your eggs before they're hatched."
