Ben Oostdam story # 341


(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 !
