Old Wirds

On Saturday I spent the entire day researching old phrases, saying and proverbs and sayings.

Here are a few of my favourites:

The postman called the kettle fat.

For the sake of a nail the ship went gay.

Empty vessels make moist hands.

A year in trumpets is as good as you get.

I scream, you scream, we all scream.

Procrastination is your father.

Here today and everywhere today.

A wicked baby never boils.

Today’s news is tomorrow’s classic news.

Let your fingers do the dirty work.

See a pin.
See a pin.
See a pin.
See a pin.
See a pin.
See a pin.
See a pin.
See a pin.
See a pin.
See a pin.

Never trust a man whose eyes are in different rooms.

That’s the lots.

Back in the early days of this Century, I made some money by saying the odd funny thing in public. On one of these occasions a fellow funny talker told me that I should write a blog (because that was the sort of thing funny talking people did back then.) Now, I’m not the sort of person who does things the easy way, so I rejected all the ready made blogging platforms and started my own website. Since then it’s become a repository for whatever stuff is bubbling out of my brains and a directory of various podcasts and videos that I’ve made with my friends and is completely unnecessary.
