(untitled 244)

We've been playing with idioms and phrases today at work. My co-worker said one a few weeks ago that absolutely slayed me: "When in Rome, stays in Rome."

We had to outdo it. Here's what we came up with.
  • Live and let learn.
  • A penny saved gathers no moss.
  • Out of the frying pan and fuel to the fire.
  • Burning your bridges at both ends.
  • Another day, another bird in the bush.
  • Blood is thicker than water under the bridge.
  • One man's rain is another man's treasure.
  • Two wrongs don't make a crowd.
  • Two's company; three's a wheel.
It's official - I have an awesome job.

Also, I've made a lot of updates to the Theodore blog. You really ought to check it out. If we get enough people reading and faithfully checking the site, I can start distributing Theodore gear again. You know, T-shirts, buttons, bumper name it. Help me fulfill a long-time dream and turn Theodore into a pretentious indie webcomic.

I had a friend my freshman year who was FANTASTIC at these!! But that was mostly because she was kind of...not...bright. My personal fave: "You hit the bull right on the horn!"

AH haah. Those were good, Rog would love this. I think he had a boss once that was similarly (inadvertantly) really good at these.

Thanks for the intro to Theodore.

Don't kick a gift horse in the mouth while it's down.

My all-time favorite, courtesy of Berke Breathed:

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't teach an old dog to make a silk purse out of a pig in a poke.

Burning the bridges at both ends cracked me up. I'm not intelligent enough to come up with my own, but fortunately not lacking in enough intelligence to inadvertently say them.

I kinda feel like trying that out, burning bridges at both ends. I guess the whole point is that you'd then fall down into the deep ravine below, though. Darn.

Might I offer an anachronistic, "Pearls before hoes"?

The one my little bro and I always say is "We'll burn that bridge when we get to it."

P.S. Theodore is linked. I'll spread him far and wide, if it's the last thing I do.
