When I grew up I was told that "all that glitters so brightly is not necessarily made of gold" meaning, that I should always be on my guard and examine things very closely ...
and when I came to London I was also reminded of the fact that even the Queen has to walk to "the quiet place" all on her own, meaning that we are all human beings, however "high up" our position might appear...
That helped me quite a lot when I finally met her Majesty...
and ... I was also informed that some people who really "made it very big" and appear "colossal", financially speaking, their riches were often involved with certain deals (drugs etc) and they only made it big, because they had no scruples to destroy lives ... and ... how important it is to really try and look behind "things"...
... These thoughts and observations have accompanied me all my life and originate from friends, teachers and professors at University...

"I may have been born at night but I wasn't born LAST NIGHT!"  Has the same meaning as "Does it LOOK LIKE I have stupid written on my face!?" Don't mess with me or I'll pull your lower lip up over your head! !

My father has been known to say, "if you don't smarten up, I'll put my boot so far up your butt that your breath will smell like feet."

though, he didn't say "butt."  He used another four letter word equivalent

My father has always had a couple of colorful ones, I guess.. I'm not sure I can repeat them here, but I"ll try.. *L*

He'd say someone was so dumb they couldn't pour water* out of a boot if they instructions were written on the heel.

or if someone was unlucky, he'd say they couldn't find water if they fell out of a boat... or if they fell into a bucket of boobs* he'd come out sucking his thumb

*these words are watered down substitutes for what he'd actually say.. *L*

He could not find his way out of a paper bag with a detailed map and a flashlight.
They could not find their butt with both hands.

He could not find his way out of a paper bag with a detailed map and a flashlight.

This reminds me of a story.  My dad and a friend of Bro's had a friendly pick on each other, always throwing insults at each other.  A couple of things: we used to keep paper bags under the counter in the kitchen to shake grease off of anything we cooked in our deep fryer.  Also, this particular year, Dad took the summer off work, and so part of his routine in the evening was to do the dishes.  One evening, Bro and this friend came in the back door while Dad was at the sink.  Friend was doing the insult thing with Dad, and they were laughing.  He said to Dad, "you couldn't fight your way out of a wet paper bag."  We were all kind of standing around and talking.  Suddenly, Dad puts a wet paper bag over Friend's head and says, "there.  Fight your way out of that."  This shocked Friend so much that he sucked in a big breath of air, and doing so, sucked the bag to his face, and it kinda stuck.  He spent most of the next 5 minutes or so peeling the bag off his face.  We had all been talking and laughing so much, that we didn't notice Dad, who was smiling and laughing along, take one of the larger paper bags out from under the cupboard and put it in the sink, where he was doing dishes.  It sounds like a mean trick, but it was funny.  We all still laugh about it.  Even Friend, who is more careful about what he says to my father. *L*
