More Fun with Proverbs

If you’ve noticed, I’m not on my regular publishing schedule….it’ll have to suffice for now. I have to put most of my efforts in getting employed…much to my dissatisfaction. Meanwhile…let’s do some funny.

Hey, I know, let’s have more fun with our old friends, proverbs.

Here is a couple we can add ancillary ones too:

A friend in need is a friend indeed
The friend I tweet is the friend I’ll never meet

An apple a day keeps the doctor away
No insurance today keeps the doctor away

Oh…and let’s finish these off because they didn’t quite do the job…

He who can does, he who cannot, teaches
He who cannot teach…sells, he who cannot sell is in government

April showers bring May flowers
Or as we say here in Portland…
April showers bring May showers which bring June showers which bring July 4th showers which brings summer

It's no use crying over spilt milk
It’s no use crying over spilt milk on your new cell phone…it’ll be outdated in a month anyway

And then of course here are some with your usual snarky VE comments…

Don't bite the hand that feeds you
Wait until they retire and throw them into a home

Flattery will get you nowhere
Un-flattery will get you beat up

Good things come to those who wait
Yeah…like death

He who lives by the sword shall die by the sword
Unless your spouse sells it on ebay while you’re at your annual guys weekend out

I like how so many of them contridict each other, like "The early bird gets the worm" but "Good things come to those that wait" Which one am I supose to believe?

Mrsupole said...

How about..

A penny saved is a penny earned,
until government taxeth it away.

A place for everything and
everything in it's place, until too much stuff at the place.

Garbage incumbent in,
garbage incumbent out.

Every politician has a skeleton in the closet, a lobbyist's backpack full of money.

God bless.

Subby said...

"He who cannot sell is in government"!! LMAO...but true...

And if you'd see what they're selling milk for these days (well, on the East Coast anyway ), you'd cry if ya spilt it!!

Very, very disturbing pic o' th' day...think I'll stay out of th' sidebar for a while 8^O

Mrsupole said...

@Subby,

If you move your cursor over the guy in red it brings up the letters VE. I wonder if that is because it is VE or maybe he needs to fix it.

VE,

You need to fix it. But you do look kinda cute and strange at the same time. LOL

GBA

Mrsupole said...

Hey it works on the guy in blue too. Look it's two VE's for the price of one. LOL again.

GBAA

Roy said...

Ooooookay...

/backs away slowly

Roy Scribner said...

A job??? Remember, VE, you can't live on bread alone.

VE said...

megan - No carpal tunnel for that comment! ;)

elizabeth - I certainly wouldn't be happy with a worm for breakfast...this is why I sleep in...

mrsupole - Ha...you do have it out for the government...

subby - I had to go back and see what pic I used...I'd already forgotten...yes...we'll have to remove that one pretty quick...

mrsupole - WTH? How'd that happen? I don't know how to fix it. We'll be moving that one over to the archive very quickly I think...

roy - Yes, it's causing quite the disturbance today...a bit over the top...even for VE!

roy - You can certainly try...I made a good run at it...

Monkey Man said...

Early to bed, early to rise makes one miss Letterman and the Today Show.

BTW - you and Dr. Heckle use the same searches for photos.

ReformingGeek said...

Hahahahaha!

I love the one about incompetent teachers and salespeople that end up in government.

I've met them.

We all have.

JenJen said...

thanks for making me choke on my joe.
Well done, as usual! lol

Alan Smithee said...

The friend I tweet is the friend I’ll never meet, indeed!

Janna said...

All you need to do now is print these out on tiny sheets of paper and sell them to fortune cookie companies.

Baino said...

Hmmm . . sorry far to distracted by the japs in mankinis . . .

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I was happy being unemployed until I recently got paid handsomely for a commissioned work and I remembered how much I like getting paid and having money in general.

The Incredible Woody said...

Those outfits remind me of some I saw this weekend!

Quirkyloon said...

You know I want to comment on your blog, but can't get past the Photo of the Day.

How many ways can I say disgusting?

Janna said...

"It’s no use crying over spilt milk on your new cell phone…it’ll be outdated in a month anyway."

So will the milk. :)

monica said...

and there's
Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die

Where there's a will, there are five hundred relatives

When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane

hehe

Mrsupole said...

Well if you had also put up a pair of red goggles then my comments would make sense, but oh no you just put up a blue pair.

Totally was liking the Japanese guys in their outfits a whole lot more, and am sorry for anyone who did not get to see them. You should at least put up the link for the poor souls who did not get the chance.

God bless.

VE said...

Monkey man – That is troubling!

Reforminggeek – I try not to meet any actual people if possible…

Jenjen – Never eat or drink when reading Fantastical Nonsense…it’s not healthy…

Alan – I see you have the same opinion of “social networking”…

Janna – Where do you buy that tiny sheet of paper and what printer setting would that be? My printer is lucky to understand regular paper…

Baino – Is that what those are called? Ridiculous. I’m changing that one out quickly…

Perpetual chocoholic – Oh, I haven’t changed my ways…the bank account has just been draining…which ultimately will make me change my ways I guess…

Incredible woody – Hope you were wearing a welder mask to shield your eyes…

Quirkyloon – Putrid, offensive, unappealing…do you really want me to go on?

Janna – True….very true…but the milk didn’t cost $300…yet

Monica – Ha! Yes, you seem to have a knack for these. I’ve done that last one…just don’t tell anyone…

Mrsupole – All of the photos of the day are archived under the photos tab just under my banner. You can still see them there…

Cheryl said...

Brilliant. Especially the one about the cell phone.

gab said...

I had the perfect rebuttal for one of these great little sayings.....but damn if the last one didnt hit home with me so much I cracked up. You know Ive been doing that a lot lately...I will probably be in that rubber room soon.

CatLadyLarew said...

I'm just sitting around, waiting for those good things to come to me...

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

Those are all really great VE.

Jaime said...

does wifey routinely get rid of your stuff while you're out with the guys? the last one sounded a bit biter :)

lime said...

biting the hand that feeds you when you get put in a home....priceless. love that one.

VE said...

Cheryl – Only the truth is funny…

Gab – I reread it…sure does fit you lately…

Catladylarew – Yeah…like the Hostess delivery truck about to hit you head on…mixed blessing…

Perpetual chocoholic – Thank you

Jaime – No…I don’t let her wander the house unsupervised…

Lime – Paybacks…
