Queerty is better as a member
What’s so gay about a $2 bill?
The original saying was queer as a three dollar bill. Two dollar bills were in existence but there’s no such thing as a three dollar bill. The saying was using the meaning of the word Queer which meant strange, odd or different back then.
@xzall: I’m familiar with that saying, though “as a $3 bill” fits much better after “phony.”
On the other hand, I like “queer as a football bat,” but have only very rarely heard it.
Her commercials gave me a lot of good laughs in the 90s.
I remember they used to spoof her on Mad TV.
Its supposed to be “Queer as a 3 Dollar Bill”. Its a play on words, because “Queer” also means “strange” or “unusual”.
@hyhybt: I am not sure about the 2 dollar bill? but you can roll it nice and sniff some Coke with it. Trust me I try it, but I don`t like coke! rather smoke GANJA.
@hyhybt: They’re rare and fabulous!
@xzall: Actually the original saying was “Queer as a two dollar bill” because they were rare and odd; particularly when they were taken out of circulation in 1966. Then when they were put back into circulation in 1976 the saying was changed to “Queer as a three dollar bill”. I never really understood why people changed it. “Queer as a two dollar bill” makes sense because we are relatively rare and, to many in the mainstream, we are odd. “Queer as a three dollar bill” infers that we don’t exist; which is only believed at Focus on the Family, the AFA, the FRC and NARTH.
@hyhybt: My go-to phrase is “gayer than pink tea”.
Mine is, “Gayer than Little Richard at a picnic”
