Common sense seems to be in short supply these days. Or is it only me who feels this way? Actually, I think common sense is making a comeback! We simply can't go on the way we have been unless we go back to "showin' a bit o' common".
"Show a bit of common, mate!" is an English expression that is usually expressed in exasperation when someone does something that is just too ridiculous to explain to them and begs that common sense be applied to the situation. One of my favourite TV characters, Stan Butler, used this expression in "On the Buses", a popular British television series in the 1970s. It just got added to my vocabulary!
