I've inherited an interest in phrases of a similar theme, expressing skepticism about a claim dependent upon too many conditionals, from an old housemate. I'm interested in more, please e-mail me if you have any.

If your auntie had balls, she'd be your uncle.
common English phrase

If your grandmother had four wheels, you'd be a bus.
translated from Spanish
With a few ifs, you could put Paris in a bottle.
French phrase.
If you had tits and no cock, you'd be a woman.
If ifs and ands were pots and pans, you'd have a very nice kitchen.
If ifs and buts were candy and nuts, wouldn't it be a Merry Christmas?
If wishes were horses, I'd be eating wish-meat every night.
Mo Sizlak's version (Simpsons S21E17)
I'm dismayed whenever libertarianism and programming are associated; in my mind, it is as nebulous as associating people who write books as communists or those who read newspapers as capitalists. - Graydon Hoare
