    Raining like a cow peeing on a flat rock.

    Slick as hot snot on a doorknob.

    Fits like socks on a chicken.

    He doesn't know his a** from his elbow

    Let sleeping dogs lie

    And if horses could pray it would rain carrots

    Mad as a wet hen

    Hot as a tar road in Tennessee

    Out of the frying pan into the fire
