Adage (and Subtractage)

Great minds think alike.
   It's called plagiarism.

Blessing in disguise.
   How we describe truly horrible things.

Apple of my eye.

   So much better than the banana of my ear.

Put a sock in it.
   Don't do it, she'll find out eventually. Trust me.

Over my dead body.

   Has this ever stopped anyone from doing anything?  It tends to be more of an incentive.

A penny saved is a penny earned.

   100 percent return on investment?  Ponzi.

Throw out the baby with the bath water.
   Then sign up for that parenting course.

Pig in a poke.
   Illegal, in most Northern states.

That's the pot calling the kettle black.
   Why can't cookware just stick to the issues?

Third time's the charm.
   Rejected as knife jugglers' motto.

Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
   And really, really boring.

... Till the cows come home.

   Why is there no cow curfew? This is why so many cows go bad.

Don't judge a book by its cover.
   Unless the cover has, I don't know, a title, an exciting description, glowing reviews ...

When pigs fly.
   Can they check on the cows?

Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

   Unless you're chained in someone's crawl space

Barky Obummer, Poser

President-Elect Barky Obummer visited Marines at Kaneohoe Bay during his Hawaiian vacation. He spent about an hour at the dining hall, shaking hands and posing for pictures. 

Sunlen Miller reports:

"As Obama entered the room, it was absent of the regular fanfare of cheering and clapping. The diners were polite, staying seated at their respective tables and waited for the president-elect to come to them to stand up."H/T: Gateway Pundit

It would have been nice if Barky could have found another hour to visit Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu. Tripler is the largest military hospital in the Asian and Pacific Rim region.

Hawaii Five-Oops ?

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific , located in Punchbowl Crater just north of Honolulu, is the final resting place of over 30,000 veterans of World Wars I and II, Korea, and Vietnam.

And it is the site of an unforgivable show of disrespect to not only every veteran interred there, especially the ones whose graves were trod all over, but also to the 23 veterans who survived the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor who were special guests that day.
