Worst adage, proverb

or pithy words of limited wisdom to live by.

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” This string of nonsense is the chalk on the blackboard of comebacks–an Okie-aphorism in which the user, a corn and pabulum fed intellectual slacker, presumes to be delivering a witty gag order because, alas, that is what he was told by his parents.

You know who you are. The next time you insist on revealing your proximity to the missing link, just drop your pants and put a lamp shade on your head. And, remember this–fuck off.

You know, Pooch, if you don’t have anything nice to say, you really shouldn’t say anything at all.


Slight tangent: I have always been irritated by conflicting proverbs:

Many hands make light work, but too many cooks spoil the broth.

He who hesitates is lost, but you should look before you leap.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder but out of sight, out of mind.

Everything in moderation, but, er, you can’t get enough of a good thing.

People in stone houses shouldn’t throw glass.

Nothing ever justfies the means except the ends. Doofuses! They’re everywhere!

If both of these crapola lines are true , the obvious conclusion comes straight off a button I own, to whit:

It matters not whether you win or lose; what matters is whether I win or lose.

Sure Wally, if it’s made of good paper stock, I can make a nifty toy boat out of it.

A penny saved is a fucking penny!

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

“A little hard work never killed anybody.”

Sure it has. I’m not fallin’ for that one.

It’s not the winning, it’s the taking part that’s important.

So why do we keep the score then?

The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Or gets replaced.

You make the call.

Rick complained of the aphorism:

But surely you were aware that this was the business slogan of the great Sioux electrician Many Hands? :smiley:

“Two wrongs don’t make a right.” Well, duh!

So you passionately present your case and Doofus looks you square in the eye and smirkingly says, “There are two sides to everything.”

All good things come to those who wait.


You snooze, you lose.

Peaceful honest people…
