    a better man never stood in two shoes

    a bit of an odd bod

    a bit rough round the edges

    a bit slow on the uptake

    A bucket load

    A face that only mothers could love

    A few tinnies/stubbies short of a slab

    A little more choke and it would have started

    A Rooster one day, and a feather duster the next..

    A Taswegian

    About as funny as a fart in an elevator

    About as ugly as a hat full of arseholes

    about as subtle as a kick in the guts

    About as useful as a one legged man in a arse kicking contest

    about as useful as an ashtray on a motor bike

    About as welcome as a pork chop in Jerusalem

    About as welcome as a turd in a swimming pool

    act your age not your shoe sie

    All froth and no beer !no substance"

    All over it like a rash

    All over the place like a drunken spider
