The full phrase is "Excuses are like asses; everybody's got em." There are many variations on this phrase; for example, some people may add "and they all stink" to the end, or change "asses" to "assholes." The phrase appears to have evolved from the related phrase, "Opinions are like assholes - everybody's got one."
