    Her, trying to be profound: If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail!

    Me, hungover and thoroughly unimpressed: By that logic, if the only tool you have is a driver, then what; every problem is solvable by screwing?
    Me: "You know the way a gun barrel tastes?
    Everyone: Uh... No.

    "Ever since happiness heard your name
    It has been running through the streets trying to find you!
    And just last week, God Himself came to my door
    Asking for your address."

    -Hafiz (excerpted from a longer piece by Hafiz, tr. by Daniel Ladinsky, fr. his book, "I Heard God Laughing.")

    Top billing: My favorite Dorothy Parker quote:

    When Alexander Woolcott asked her to use horticulture in a sentence she promplty replied:
    "You can lead a hore to culture but you can't make her think"

    From WF Members! culled from my thread "Malapropisms" in WORD GAMES (some slightly altered to qualify as quotes)

    " Serious car accidents can leave you with a conclusion" midnightpoet
    " Some people make the best southern-fried kitchen is cooked in the chicken" Birdy
    " I think the best writers compost thier poems in the middle of the night."SilverMoon
    "
    A catatonic response is often met with a cataclysmic silence" Olly Buckle
    "
    He frequently remarked that he was brilliant because he had a photogenic memory" SilverMoon
    " What about WF's globular membership?" JustRob

    . Just now, off my rocker:
    "People who live in stone houses shouldn't throw coke bottles"

    And of course, my Signatature.

    Malapropism thread. Lots of fun! https://www.writingforums.com/thread...ite-a-sentence
