It meant very unusual. In NC it's even pronounced quarr. This saying originated many years ago.
My grandfather said that "Dick" was really "Nick", or the devil.

Thanks, Firebird!

Sixes, short for - 6 one, half dozen the other, or either way the same.
Shit or get of the pot - do it or get out of the way.
Coyote ugly- waking up next to a ugly woman laying on your arm, rather than waking her, chewing of your arm.
Double coyote ugly_ the same as above, but then later chewing off the other arm as she might be looking for a 1 armed man.

I hereby award this one the New Years Eve best saying award! LOL It most precisely reflects my feelings about Daylight Savings Time.
Thanks Ray.

Some Yogi Berra-isms....

When you come to a fork in the road, take it!

It's deja vu all over again.

General....

Dumber than a bag of hammers.

Another day above ground, it's ALL good! (I actually use this when someone asks how I am...)

If brains were dynamite, you wouldn't have enough to blow your nose.

Beat HARD with an ugly stick.

Life's too short to drink cheap booze.

One of my favorite sayings is, "What are we, Barbarians?"

Meaning, "Go for it," or "Let's choose the most expensive option."

A few years ago I was in Germany and said when ordering from a strange menu, "What are we, Barbarians?" My German friends said, "Why yes, we are Bavarians. Why do you ask?"
