Come Hell or Sausage

Well, so now Latigo Flint knows that there is at least one girl in the world who does not respond favorably at all to the statement: "Little lady, you know you can always depend on me - I'll be there for you, come hell or sausage."

And it doesn't seem to help in the slightest to explain after the fact that since sausage is a popular breakfast dish, and most people die in their sleep, "come hell or sausage" is actually a rather clever way of saying "come what may/no matter what etc."

(It probably also didn't help that the young woman in question had never met Latigo Flint before.)

One girl out of billions isn't a large enough sample size to completely rule out the aforementioned line's icebreaker potential, but the response was so unpleasant that Latigo Flint hasn't the heart to use it even one more time.

Perhaps next time Latigo Flint will try "come hell or bacon" in order to remove any possible phallic connotation.

Actually, "Come hell or bacon" has a slightly nicer ring to it. And, since more people eat bacon than sausage, the irony is more apparent. Personally, I prefer using "Come hell or a hot fudge sundae." Women love chocolate and instinctively know how hard one of those is to turn down.

I think on your next test subject (victim?) you should say:

"Come hell or my sausage."

Maybe you could impress her by displaying your weapon.

Gunslingers tend to keep their own council, but this advice is all so good that Latigo Flint may make an exception.
