The comical value is, of course, subjective, but I like funny phrases and such. Sometimes their humor is derived from their antiquatedness, sometimes just from the way they sound. I like fun to drop these things in casual conversation, so I need to learn a collection of them.
Along the lines of what I'm looking for:
"Cock in the henhouse"
"Bee in your bonnet"
