Useless as tits on a ball < bull

Another reply to SuperHolly’s video:

I always thought “useless as tits on a ball” not bull. Which made sense to me because they would get in the way and be beyond useless!

Works for me!

Re: Useless as tits on a ball < bull

FWIW, the version I heard from my dad was “useless as breasts on bacon”, but I suspect that was the “kid-friendly” version and that he really probably said “tits on bacon” or some such thing when with other grown-ups. Anyone here heard any other variations?
