    My best friend's father has a saying when he thinks someone's lying "he talks like a man with a paper a****le." I have heard him offer this gem, on occasion, since I was 5 years old. We have asked him time and time again what it means and he has always maintained that he had no idea that his father always said it. One day last week my friend, a teacher, heard one of his students say,"you talk like a man with a cardboard a**." As you can well imagine the young man was questioned as to it's origin but he had no idea. I have decided that I would offer this prophetic gem to my fellow GT'ers to see if anyone has any idea what it means. For 45 years I have wondered, if indeed, there is such a thing as a man with a paper a****le!!! Thank you for your time and your patience.

    Good luck!! I have been hearing that phrase all of my life (that's a long time) and I still don't know what it means or where it originated. I have, however, used it to describe some of my aquaintances and relatives over the years. It also seems to fit some GT'ers quite well.:tongueout::rofl::rofl:

    only thing I can think of is the paper being toilet paper. Maybe having something to do with being full of sh(censored)t?

    Q.: 1) I've heard the expression "You talk like a man with a paper *******!" What is this referring to and how did it get started?

    A.: 1) The expression means to talk nonsense or being full of ****, and has been around in the United States since the 1940s. How it came about is uncertain.

    If someone says i talk like a man with a paper *****hole, what does that mean??

    i found this comment which sounds logical. I

    quote:
    I don't know the origin but the "sense" is found in a more complete version of the saying : You're like a man with a paper *******... the ***** just keeps coming out. Paper wouldn't be a good replacement for muscle and skin.

    Never heard that expression, but I do remember when I was younger hearing the gummed doughnuts used to reinforce pages in a three-ring binder referred to as "paper a****les."

    So what does a guy with a box of gummed reinforcements talk like?

    I just read that the complete phrase is actually "You talk like a man with a paper ass backing into a blow torch." Don't know if that's true or not of course.

    Never heard of it. I have heard "My ass was sucking buttermilk", meaning I was scared.
