Advantages It passed the time.
Disadvantages see review
I’ve had a crappy day stuck in a hospital being x-rayed, poked and prodded and once again letting the vampires get at my blood, they must have collected more of mine over the years than Dracula ever got.
So. I’m feeling a bit poorly, not up to doing a serious review and there’s nothing on TV, I have writer’s block and none of the “ten Most” categories inspired me, so you get stuck with this one. I actually thought there was a category for old sayings or adages but I must have been hallucinating, so I guess this is the only place to put it, since I’ve done most of the donkeywork already. Feel free to have a good old groan as you’re reading.
“Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves”
However hard I stared at them they sat there rusting on the shelf.
One day when I was very broke I took down the jar to count them
Would the pounds have mounted up? Alas they came to two pounds ten.
“A stitch in time saves nine” they say, whoever penned that ditty
Should be made to sew up seams as penance for being witty.
There must be many a person with a phobia of deepest dread
From cobbling socks to turning collars, now there’s nylon thread!
“The pen is mightier than the sword”, tell that to histories kings
Who had a habit of lopping off heads to beget their B…..D offspring.
Times really haven’t changed that much forged documents led to war
And vitriol flows right from the pen to even up the score.
“A fool and his money are soon parted”, I wonder from where that came?
Maybe from the days of idle rich who blemished their family name.
Now the gentries’ days are gone their mansions are crumbling heaps,
Kept up by National Heritage, safari parks or sheep.
“Too many cooks spoil the broth” now that’s a wise adage
Especially pertinent to TV in this our day and age
Whatever day, whatever channels you’ll be sure to find
A famous chef, or two, or four, all with a knife to grind.
I hope those gave you a few chuckles.
