aristotle

 

Major premise, minor premise, conclusion. I’ve got it!  So, something like:

 

Warren Buffett is raking in the money.

Money does not grow on trees.

Warren Buffett has shrubs that grow money.

 

This is easy!  

 

Blood is thicker than water.

Barack Obama has ice water in his veins.

Barack Obama has thin veins.

 

I mean, just look at the guy!

 

A friend in need is a friend indeed.

Any friend of yours is a friend of mine.

No, I have no idea where your friends are.

 

Variety is the spice of life.

Life is a bitch.

Life is a bitch.

 

A good man is hard to find.

Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once and a while.

Blind Squirrel: great name for your indie band. Or maybe lower case and one word: blindsquirrel. Yeah.

 

Mama said there would be days like this.

She also told me this: “that gal you’re fooling with, she ain’t no girl for you.” (Papa done told me, too.)

By the way, my wife and I have our 30th anniversary on Monday. Just sayin’.

 

My back is to the wall.

The writing’s on the wall.

WTF! Are you telling me that all this time
