    Cliche is a tired, overused phrase. Often it has become meaningless.

    examples: As blue as the sky..
    poorer than a pickpocket in a nudist colony
    kick the dog and cat
    chew the rag
    Well I'll be a money's uncle
    as screwed up as a football bat
    cold turkey
    lie like a rug
    two shakes of a lamb's tail
    chew him out
    put your foot down
