Proverbial Wisdom . . . sorta

Sunday, May 25, 2008 | | |

I saw this on The Amish Robot and I know that that my kiddos are usually good for a few funny quotes. These are proverbs that I had Ethan and Braeden finish by saying the first thing that came to their minds after I game them the first half of each phrase:

Better to be safe than . . . watching TV
Strike while the . . . others play
It's always darkest before . . . night
Never underestimate the power of . . . God or The Force
You can lead a horse to water but . . . you can't lead a horse to Canada
Don't bite the hand that . . . belongs to a lion
No news is . . . pretty boring
A miss is as good as a . . . strike
You can't teach an old dog new . . . tricks
If you lie down with dogs you'll . . . get fleas
Love all, trust . . . your parents
The pen is mightier than the . . . pencil
An idle mind is . . . sleeping
Where there's smoke there's . . . a car
Happy is the bride who . . . is married
A penny saved is . . . one cent
Two's company, three's . . . a family
Don't put off 'til tomorrow what . . . is special
Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and . . . scream
None are so blind as . . . mice
Children should be seen and not . . . punished
If at first you don't succeed . . . go plant a seed
You get out of something what you . . . like
When the blind leadeth the blind . . . they won't know where they're going
Better late than . . . dying

So if you ever can't remember how the proverb goes, just give us a call and you'll get some fine elementary school wisdom!
