Sunday Funny: Twisted

I’ve heard many a helpful sentiment this week, and I appreciate them all. Truly do.

Since I’m a nerdy word peep, I probed my brain’s recesses for more wise sayings, you know, to get through this interesting situation I find myself mired in. Then I had an “aha moment”. What would these aphorisms be like with a slight twist?

I present to you shaken and stirred, twisted and bent, new Parables:

· The kettle does not care whether you are watching or not.

· The early worm gets eaten by the bird.

· You can’t have everything, where would you put it?

· Once bitten by two dogs.

· When days are dark turn on the light.

· When friends are few enjoy the abundance.

· A bird in hand is worth two on a dating site.

· God helps those who don’t need help.

· Only drunk people ever have to say ‘I’m not drunk’.

· Leave all the stones unturned unless you are looking for insects and worms.

· Denial is not just a river in Egypt.

· Pennywise pound millionaire.

· If your parents never had children, chances are you won’t, either.

· When one door is closed it quickly becomes a fad.

· He who hesitates probably smoked weed.

· Time wounds all heels.

· Never insult an alligator until after you have crossed the river.

· Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we will be broke.

      most definitely, their train will eventually derail, that’s just karma 🙂

  2. These are great, Roxie. Thanks!
    I had a college roommate who always said: “Eat, drink, and be merry…knowing full well that tomorrow you’ll wake up fat, miserable and throwing up in your shoes.”
    (She was a little ray of sunshine.)

    • ahhh, college, where did those days go? “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow you’ll wear those shoes!” grand, Marylin, just grand! 😉

  3. Roxie, laughing here. I so enjoy your Sundays. I’ve one more for you “It’s always darkest just before it turns completely black!” I’m going to save some of the others you’ve shared … I love twisted sayings, sometimes goes with our twisted lives (certainly brightens the day) Thank you! 🙂
