Time for more proverbs or can I say semi-pro verbs

  • Beggars can't be choosers. Besides, making good choices is probably not their forte.

  • Behind every great man is a great woman. Behind her is the guy's wife, and boy is she pissed.

  • The best defense is a good offense. And gun turrets.

  • Better to light a candle than curse the darkness. Save the cursing for when the candle spills hot wax on you.

  • A penny saved is a penny earned, but if you're counting the pennies, you're screwed.

  • Neither a borrower nor a lender be. Just take the damn thing.

  • Where there's a will, there's a way to contest it.

  • Two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts do.

  • Good things come to those who wait tables.

  • Haste makes waste. Donuts make waist.

  • Honesty is the best policy, but the premiums are unaffordable.

  • If we were meant to fly, we'd have wings. If we were meant to be too fat to fly, we'd have wings with ranch sauce.

  • Love is blind. This explains why it feels like it keeps whacking you with its cane.

  • Misery loves company. Especially this one company I used to work for.

  • Nature abhors a vacuum. So does my house.

  • Time wounds all heels.

  • Forewarned is forearmed, but oblivious is elbowed in the gut.

  • If you can't beat them, join them to a chair with duct tape. Then beat them.

  • Money is the root of all evil. So money does grow on trees; you just have to dig for it.

  • Blood is thicker than water. But give it a good scrub and the cops will never know.

  • Charity begins at home. Or so my neighbour kids told me when they begged 5 bucks off me.

  • Cleanliness is next to godliness. But it's even closer to annoyingliness.

  • The early bird catches the worm. So sleep in, unless you like worms for breakfast.

  • Discretion is the better part of valor. But it's the most critical part of cowardice.

  • Don't punch a gift horse in the mouth.

  • It takes one to know one. But it doesn't take anything to know nothing at all.

  • Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and the world laughs at you.

  • A person is known by the company he keeps. Especially the CEO.

  • A picture paints a thousand words. But they're really tiny and hard to read.

  • A rising tide lifts all boats. Then it smashes them on the rocks.

  • Crime doesn't pay. But the perks are awesome.

  • He who hesitates is lost. You can tell because he's looking at a map.

  • It's no use crying over spilled milk. Acid, however, is worth a complete breakdown.

  • Let sleeping dogs lie. But torture the cats for the truth.

  • Many hands make light work. But electricity makes lights work.

  • A friend in need is a friend in debt.

  • A good man is hard to fine.

  • A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. So don't even start or you'll be walking for friggin' ever.

  • A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. But not as dangerous as a little dynamite.

I think that's enough for today..... more to come soon.
