"Butter my butt and call me a biscuit"

I can't help but smile because I think it's funny and clever. Supposedly it's a country saying, and well, me being from the country and all, I would have thought I would have heard someone say it around here.

But I mean really, has anyone heard it before? Got one to top it?

I have never heard that one

I have never heard that one before but Google had lots of hits for it.

Translation: Sometimes you get so surprised by life there ain't nothin' else to say but, 'Butter my butt and call me a biscuit.'"

I have heard other country expressions but many should not be repeated here.
