TAX DAY DEDUCTIONS: poetic syllogisms

Rate: 1 Flag
by Jeff Sawyer   

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. 

Your goose is cooked. 

Cook the gander. 

 Absence makes the heart grow fonder. 

Out of sight, out of mind.

Leave and forget about it. 

Too many cooks spoil the broth.
Many hands make light work.
With help, bad soup is easier to make. 

Figures don’t lie, but liars can figure. 
Let sleeping dogs lie. 
Dogs that get enough sleep can do math. 

All good things come to those who wait.
Time and tide wait for no man.
Time and tide bad. Man late.

Build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door.
When one door closes, another one opens.
Mice or people, crowded  porch. 

Any friend of yours is a friend of mine. 
A friend in need is a friend indeed. 
Our friends are needy. 

Variety is the spice of life. 
The unexamined life is unworth living.  
Scrutinize a variety of spices. 

Still waters run deep.
Water water everywhere, and not a drop to drink.
Still thirsty. 

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. 
Plenty of other fish in the sea. 
Not hungry. 

A picture is worth a thousand words. 
The pen is mightier than the sword.
Sword slices up picture. Pen wins.

Next to being shot at & missed, nothing is really quite as satisfying as an Income Tax refund.
