Proverbs as finished by a fourth grade class:
There is nothing new... under a rock.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with... a private jet.
If you can't stand the heat... try Antarctica.
Better late than... absent.
Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Cry, and... then blow your nose.
A bird in the hand is... better than a woodpecker on your head.
Early to bed, early to rise... and you will get the best cereal.
Don't burn your bridges... or you'll fall in the lake.
Haste makes... sweat.
A penny saved... is not a lot.
A miss is as good as... a mister.
A saleswoman is speaking to her psychiatrist. "I'm on the road a lot, and my clients are complaining that they can never reach me."
"Don't you have a phone in your car?"
"That was a little too expensive, so I did the next best thing. I put a mailbox in my car."
"Uh... how's that working?"
"Actually, I haven't gotten any letters yet."
"And why do you think that is?"
"I figure its because when I'm driving around, my zip code keeps changing."
A man running a little behind schedule arrives at the cinema, goes in to watch the movie that has already started, and as his eyes adjust to the darkness, he is surprised to see a dog sitting beside its master in the row ahead, intently watching the movie.
It even seemed to be enjoying the movie: wagging its tail in the happy bits, drooping its ears at the sad bits, and hiding its eyes with its paws at the scary bits.
After the movie, the man approaches the dog's owner, "Wow, your dog really seemed to enjoy the movie. I'm amazed!"
"Yes, I can't believe it myself," came the reply. "He hated the book."
It was a very emotional wedding...
Even the cake was in tiers!
