Alternative Proverbs

I found the following alternative proverbs on the intertubes. They're probably very old, but they amused me!

Don't change horses until they stop running

Strike while the bug is close

It's always darkest before Daylight Saving Time

Never underestimate the power of termites

You can lead a horse to water but how?

Don't bite the hand that looks dirty

No news is impossible

A miss is as good as a Mr

You can't teach an old dog new maths

If you lie down with dogs, you'll stink in the morning

Love all, trust me

The pen is mightier than the pigs

An idle mind is the best way to relax

Where there's smoke there's pollution

Happy the bride who gets all the presents

A penny saved is not much

Two's company, three's the Musketeers

Don't put off till tomorrow what you put on to go to bed

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and you have to blow your nose

There are none so blind as Stevie Wonder

Children should be seen and not spanked or grounded

If at first you don't succeed get new batteries

You get out of something only what you see in the picture on the box

When the blind lead the blind get out of the way

A bird in the hand is going to poop on you

Better late than pregnant


As always there is more than a grain of truth in many of them.
