Wisdom Pearls

by

A rolling stone gathers no moss. But he does gather a buttload of money when he goes on tour.

You'll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, but your best bet is to use a flyswatter.

The squeaky wheel gets the grease. And sometimes the squeaky wheel gets replaced.

Don't judge a book by its cover. Judge it by how goofy the author looks on the back.

The early bird catches the worm. The early husband catches his wife in bed with the mailman.

Don't put the cart before the horse. Better still, buy a damned car, you cheapskate!

    I did the first one 6 years ago, the second 3 years ago. So I figured I was due for a third installment. I'll do another in three more years.

    Thanks, Verity. I used to do Wisdom Pearls on Twitter many years ago so I had a bunch in reserve and just decided to make it a drabble series about six years ago. This one was all-new, though, except for the rolling stone one. That was one I had done on Twitter.

    Good idea for Twitter, though! I think we all replenish and relish from time to time

    Well, it never really got much attention on Twitter.

    Oh! why don't you try those (#vss) and others on Twitter? they will surely be a hit!

    Twitter used to be a fun place where you could get a lot of traction with comedy, but now all anyone wants to tweet about is politics. And each side is meanspirited and opinionated. It's not really much fun anymore.

    True, sometimes, it could be too overwhelming to read.
