comment Connotations of “Salt of the earth”
You wouldn't recommend the compliment? Now obviously I wouldn't given the compliment to just anyone, they would have to be the salt of the earth. But I think it's such a beautiful phrase, I see no reason not to use it.

Ah, thanks for your comments. This definitely did not keep me up at night :) I was more interested in the expression itself. It's such a beautiful idiom, that it would be a shame to avoid it for ambiguity.

@Theodore Broda Hm, sounds like "corny" may not be the word I'm after. All of the definitions I read for it have to do with something trite or sentimental. But I'm talking about something that was either forced or a stretch - saying something unnatural where a person might accuse you of trying to hard.

comment Opposite of witty
What exactly does corny mean? I've always struggled with this word since none of my friends or family use it. Can it simply describe a response that is un-clever, forced, lame? Is it a catch-all for bad lines (or jokes) that you deliver?
