: If ifs and ands were pots and pans. My mother's next line was "We'd be washing up for ever". Has anyone else heard this version?

That's a new one to me anyway. It has a nice rhythm to it. Another not yet mentioned in this forum: "If ifs and buts were candy and nuts, we'd all have a Merry Christmas." I like that variation because "buts" are more on-target than "ands."
