If At First You Don’t Succeed… Give It To A Kid

Is it possible to improve upon the classics? A Year One teacher reportedly handed her class the first part of well-known proverbs and asked them to fill in the rest. The result – some of the new ones make more sense than the original versions.

Don’t bite the hand that… looks dirty.

You can’t teach an old dog new… maths.

If you lie down with dogs, you’ll… stink in the morning.

A penny saved is… not much.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you; cry and… you have to blow your nose.

Children should be seen and not… grounded.

It’s always darkest before… daylight-savings time.

When the blind leadeth the blind… get out of the way.

-C. Bozarth
