You gotta love Steven Wright! For the Baby-Boomer, no one can touch him as the master of the One-Liner. A Hyde parent recently sent me a list of gems. Although hard to do, I culled it down to a dozen:
1 – I’d kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.
2 – The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
3 – How do you tell when you’re out of invisible ink?
4 – When everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.
5 – Hard work pays off in the future; laziness pays off now.
6 – I intend to live forever…. so far, so good.
7 – Eagles may soar, but weasels don’t get sucked into jet engines.
8 – Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.
9 – To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.
10 – The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
11 – Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don’t have film.
12 – If your car could travel at the speed of light, would your headlights work?
Onward, Malcolm Gauld
