  • Twists On "Sayings"

    I get a kick out of sayings or quotes, and I also enjoy using some of them, although when they get too "common" I am not as willing to employ. For example, "it is what it is" has a lot of meaning packed into a short line, but trouble is, you could hardly go a day without hearing someone say it. I believe that one is so compact and loaded with meaning, that most of us jumped all over it......especially people in sports!! It definitely saves a lot of explanation.

    Today I am going to offer a saying, and give it a twist. I will think of more I'm sure.

    Saying: It's the journey, not the destination (note: you will find various versions of the same concept)

    My twist: It's gotta be the destination, because I was drunk on the plane the whole trip


    I'm sure you can do better!:thumb:

            I get most of my idiomatic expressions from this great man:


            Most of his sayings are already twisted.

                      Saying: Great minds think alike.

                      Twist: Great minds think alike; at least that’s what we tell each other.

                        Who???? Us????







                        But sometimes I am not even sure what I'm thinking......you too? If so, that's great.

                          Saying: It Is What It Is

                          Twist: No It Isn't (which by the way is the most common argument that Pats fans offer, after they have been presented a multitude of facts)

                          OR

                          Twist2: I Can't Think Of A Better Answer, So.....It Is What It Is

                              A bullet would be much easier to pass.
