Grass Clibbins, Almost Haddalayerdown is a catchphrase written as if spoken phonetically in a southern accent used in ironic motorcycling memes that translates to, "grass clippings, almost had to lay her down." The phrase was popularized on the "Hog Crankers Against Grass Clibbins" Facebook page and refers to the potential danger that grass clippings left on the road present to cyclists, as grass clippings make the road slicker.
It is unclear when the term "grass clibbins" or "grass clibbins, almost haddalayerdown" was first used online.
