Old Sayings Confusion

    Hey, gang!

    An idea hit me from this thread here when I saw a post by GelflingWaldo which read:

    And I almost posted this in the same thread:

    Never book a judge by its cover.

    But, that was going to take the thread WAY off topic, so instead I thought, "Wouldn't it be a fun game if we were to mix-up old sayings and confuse folks with them?" And then I responded and said, "Yup, it might."

    Now, I'm on medication for talking to myself and answering, but I suppose we might be able to have some fun, so post away!

    Hm. Not many people seem interested in this thread Fozzie. Maybe you were barking up the wrong tree without a paddle.

    But I do have a good, and thought provoking, one from Star Trek: Lefler's Law #32: "If life hands you lemonade, don't try to make lemons out of it."

    Well there's this offensive one that I really don't believe but it falls under this category:

    Just because I'm dumb doesn't mean I'm blonde.

    Again, being blonde, don't appreciate it, but I thought it was a funny twist of words.

    Hehe. Nice one.

    "Tea for two" and backwards "Two for tea."

    Wait...taht still makes perfect sence...let's tr that another way:

    "Tea for two," and backwards, "Owt rof aet."

    And yes, this post was brought to you by the letter T and inspired by a Muppet Show sketch involving a dog and a boomerang fish thrower.

    Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read.

    Don't bite the horse that feeds you in the mouth.

    ((i.e. Don't bite the hand that feeds you and don't look a gift horse in the mouth. My friend accidentally said this yesterday, swear ta God.)) ;)
