SMILES FROM KIDS
(thanks, Hans !)
A grade one teacher collected well known proverbs.
She gave each child in her class the first half of a proverb
and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb.
It's hard to believe these were actually done by grade one kids (six year-olds),
The last one is classic!
Here we go:
Don't bite the hand that --- looks dirty.
If you lie down with dogs, you'll --- stink in the morning.
No news is --- impossible.
You can't teach an old dog new --- maths.
Love all, trust --- me.
The pen is mightier than the --- pigs .
Where there's smoke there's --- pollution.
A penny saved is --- not much.
Two's company, three's --- the Musketeers .
Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and --- you have to blow your nose.
There are none so blind as --- Stevie Wonder .
When the blind leadeth the blind --- get out of the way .
And the favorite:
Better late than ------ pregnant !
