It. Is an American saying.

I know that it means you like someone.

I always wondered what a jib was or the sayings origin.

Thought you could help.

McMorisson, I've looked upon that definition, and it has something to do with nautical stuff. I've read that a jib is a sail on the bow of a ship, and people used to judge a ship by its jib.

Hope it helps a bit. BTW, thanks for the compliment. ;)

A little more info:  I like the cut of your jib used to characterise the way a person looks, sailors would recognise the nationality of other ships by the shape of the triangular forsesail (or Jib).
A good monarch is a treasure. A good politician is an oxymoron.

My brain is both uninhibited and uninhabited.

I'm not really into introductions, but I was asked to do so. Anyway, allow me to introduce myself.

Like many members here, I came from other forums, and I happened to stumble upon here because of some juiciness about Alex Plank. Personally, I have a distaste for Plank, due to the fact that he sold out to Them-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named when he produced those videos.

I am actually just lurking around to test the waters, and though I heard of the notoriety of this community, I know I have to know more about this forum and its works.

Anyway, if you want to know more about me, ask away.

One of the coolest avatars, EVER!!

Saw the thread in unread post list; recognized the name from sending them PM messages. Thought maybe one of my messages had worked.
