When the going gets tough, find something easier to do.

He who laughs last is slow to get the joke.

Once bitten, shoot the dog.

Never look a gift horse up the ass.

I once worked with an electrician who would very sincerely try to use old saying, and would end up 'compressing' and warping them in strange ways...you always knew what he meant, but it did funny things to your mind:

instead of "Six of one, half a dozen of the other" it became "Six dozen of the other"

"People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" takes on a new meaning if you visit the small Yorkshire village of Glasshouses.
My pet new saying is the collateral, or possibly converse of a well known old one, it reads.
If something isn't worth doing - it isn't worth doing well.
This proved a useful rule to follow when presented by management with bloody stupid tasks which didn't make any sense and would just waste time which could be better spent on something genuinely useful.

When the chief of this African village got a television set, his family loved to watch together. Unfortunately there was no room for his large ceremonial throne. So they put it in the loft.

Sad to say as the ceiling was only made of grass, the throne came crashing down - right in the middle of Coronation Street.

Moral - people who live in grass houses shouldn't store thrones!

You can put a cat in the oven but that doesn't make it a biscuit.

Well, you can put a bun in the oven but that doesn't prove the cat did it! :>)

I thought that was Henry Fonda's mother talking to his brother Hargrove? "Absinthe made thee, Hargrove Fonda!"

Its not the weight of the emotional baggage, so much as they way you carry it that drags you down.

In reply to "if only so-and-so, we could" blah blah blah, I like to say (not original):

If we had some ham we could have ham and eggs, if we had some eggs!

I thought it was "Absinthe makes the mind go wander."
If all else fails, use bloody great nails.
How about the surgeons' favourite "If in doubt, cut it out".
If at first you don't succeed - get someone else to do it

It's not a saying, but Rich's post reminded me of....

Things to do tomorrow - get up at the crack of dawn, stuff the crack and go back to bed.

Hi, Ma Fazoo, who is too tired to fool anymore with this "cookie thing". When I married the Cranky Yankee, my fathers encouraging words REALLY were, "You buttered your bread, now lie in it." And my mom really told me my brother had an orange juice tree in his yard, that she had white muslim curtains, and that a friend of hers was so thin he looked emancipated. So, see? I CAN'T HELP BEING THIS WAY.
