Sticks and Stones

What if we were given an assignment to create fresh old adages? New famous old sayings. An oxymoron, you say? Consider:

Sticks and stones may break my bones...but they can also make a lovely centerpiece, according to HGTV.

The early bird...has to contend with fog and school buses.

If at first you don't succeed, try a different credit card.

A bird in the hand...had better be wearing a diaper.

Curiosity didn't kill the cat, but it sure made him think.

Too many cooks...are vying for the next Food Network show.

If you can't say something nice about someone, don't say that you can't think of anything nice to say about them.

Don't you agree? We need some new old adages.
