It’s The Way I Tell ‘Em (21)

It is the run up to the Festival of Mammon and we all need a bit of light relief so here goes:
- I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.
- Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
- The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it is still on the list.
- Light travels faster than sound. That’s why some people seem bright until you hear them speak.
- Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it into a fruit salad.
- The early bird may get the worm but the second mouse will get the cheese.
- Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
- Children. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 telling them to sit down and shut up.
- Better to be silent and thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
- To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal ideas from many is research.
- How come it takes one careless match to start a forest fire but a whole box to start a camp fire?
- I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian
- A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove you don’t need it.
- A clear conscience is a sign of a bad memory.
- I didn’t say it was your fault. I said I was blaming you.
- The sole purpose of a child’s middle name is so he can tell when he is in trouble.
- Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won’t expect it back.
- My opinions may have changed but not the fact that I am right
And to finish up, specifically for the festive season
- Hospitality is making your guests feel at home even if you wish they were and
- Some cause happiness wherever they go, others whenever they go.
To be continued.
