Reworking old sayings

United States

Okay, so I love the old sayings, such as - Change is inenvitable. Chickens don't praise their own soup. Clean your fingers before you point at my spots. Actually, those last two I have never heard before, but they are nice. Anyway, think about all of those old cliched sayings, how can you change them? Don't run a home-run before you whack the ball. aka - Don't count your chickens before they hatch. Ah....right so. When I come up with more I shall post them here. In the mean time. I'd like to see how you others can be creative and change your cliche sayings into something else.

1) Don't cry over spilled milk - means, just drink from the milk carton. 2) Beggars can't be choosers - means, take it or leave it, lol.

Beggars can't be choosers - Stale bread is good with anything on it! Don't cry over spilt milk - Just drink it from the carton (I like that one!) here is mine - Don't cry over spilt milk because you can still slurp it up with the use of a straw!

Hey Swash, that's a good one! Something my mom used to say to me was, "Don't do as I do, do as I say", equals, Put on a blindfold, I'm a dictator!! Ha! This is a blast.

"Put on a blindfold, I'm a dictator!" - omg, that one is brilliant. I'll remember that as a come back when someone say's that same thing to me. *lol* It reminds me of something else as well. Ah, the fun I shall have teasing my pro-Obama friends!

very cool. i am always interested not in the saying itself so much but how they came about. there are usually some interesting stories found within them. like the story of the child's poem 'ring around the rosey' supposedly came out of england during the dark days of the black plague.

Ring around the Posey was about the black plague and its effects on people. I'm a history studet and I took a class on ancient history, this one was of particular interest to the class. We even watched a video of it and not only did our history book say the same about this little ditty but so did the vid.*lol*
