I stand corrected

As Tiago T. states, it's an admission that the speaker was wrong about something.  I've never heard "I stand correct", so I assume that it is a typographical error.  Correct me if I'm wrong, and I'll stand corrected.

Bill:  You told everyone I'm from Texas, but I'm from Montana.

Jack:  I stand corrected.  I was sure you were Texan.

 

 

No s**t, Sherlock!

Tiago T. did a great job on this one too.  As he said, it's insulting and/or sarcastic.

Jim:  Flora got really angry when I called her a fat pig.

Doc:  No s**t, Sherlock.  Do you really think so?  Duh!  How would you like it if someone called you names?

 

 

How do you say "Sim" and "Não" in English?  Anyone can say "Yes" and "No", but here are some fun (and slang) ways to say these words by asking questions.

 

No.  =  Does a chicken have lips?

Yes.  =  Is the Pope Catholic?  Does a bear s**t in the woods?

The answers to these questions are obvious.

 

Liz:  The new bartender is so cute!  Would you go out with him if he asked you? 

Lu:  Is the Pope Catholic?  Of course I would!

 

Jon:       Are you going to the party at Steve's?

Noel:     Does a bear s**t in the woods?  That party is going to rock and lots of babes are going to be there.

 

Jim:      Hey, Max, you got twenty bucks you can lend me until Monday?

Max:    Does a chicken have lips?  You haven't repaid the money you     borrowed two weeks ago.
