Weekend Contest Results

Weekend Contest Results

"A stitch in time is worth two in the bush."

Your assignment was to take two or more grand old sayings, cliches, sage saws or famous quotes and cobble (clobber) them together to make a new and wiser adage or utter nonsense as in the above. This was a very hard contest to judge. The offerings were so good and so diverse that I've decided to make 4 categories, 2 each for the Email Lions and the Blogspot Tigers. One first prize of a solid plastic sledge hammer to the winner of each category and one runner up prize in each for the one entry that made me laugh out loud.

First place for the Email Lions goes to Lindsay for :
"The mouse ran up the clock to see the cow jump over the moon."

First prize for the Blogspot Tigers goes to Nina for:
"To be or not to be is in the eye of the beholder."

And the two runners up (runner ups)
"You can't teach an old dog before they hatch." from Barry of the Lions, and

"I ate his liver with some fava beans and as God is my witness I'll never be hungry again." from Salemslot9 of the Tigers.

Congratulations all.
The other entries were:
"From the sublime, don't do the crime."
"The farmer who wants a free cow doesn't put all his eggs in one basket."
"Dream as if you'll live forever but don't put all of your eggs in one basket."
"A penny saved spoils the child."
"Something old, something blue, the old lady who lives in a shoe."
"Two peas in a pod, give me love and spare the rod."
"I'm up to my ass in alligators but if it was easy everyone would be doing it."
"A bad penny gathers no moss."
"A little pot may look at a king."
"A penny saved never boils."

Thank you everyone.

All of these were wonderful and make perfect sense... I am inclined to incorporate them into use, if you don't mind!!
