Or, "you've been sleeping in Elton John's piano". (also means one is
spoiled, has it too easy, or lives in a dream world)

"He's painting the milk white" also.
A few more:
"Bare nekkid lady in the road!" (means "look out")
"Don't play the shell game with God." (means "it's hopeless")

"Ask the Candace." (Don't trouble me. A Techian expression; the Candace is
usually the queen mother, or even the queen herself.)
"Thiry stone and no knees." (The bigger they are, the harder they fall.)
