IDIOMS REMODELED (9-12)

 

 

You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink pigs fly

 

A chicken run for your money.

 

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket a concrete mixer

 

Too many cooks spoil the broth brothels spoil the cock.

    I came to the last one laughed my head off and realised why it was an 18. Thank you for my first laugh of the day Michael.

        Angela here - A Blessed Sunday Mornin* to yer Micke me Boyo ! Thanks for Cartoon & SMOIDI !
        I know a good Irish Catholic Joke about Brothels - which yer Spouse might enjoy !
        Two NUNS were sayin* the Rosary outside a Masage Parlour in Dublin - when a Anglican Bishop comes out *Did yer see that Hypocrit* says Sister Mercy ! Next minute a Rabbi walks in and Sister Evangeline says *Another Critahop !* Just then their PRIEST - Father Joe - comes out smiling ! *O Mother of God says Mercy - There must be someone SICK in there - lets PRAY for Healing !*

        My fave was No 3. I have a great respect for
        EGGS - Prepacked FAST FOOD - just boil & serve !
        Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
        Love Angela - Brian - Smokey ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐ŸคŽ

        A burger in the hand is worth two weeks sick pay
        Never put off until tomorrow that which you can get someone else to do anytime
        A fool and his money parted at the casino
        Dont count your chickens till the waiter brings desert.
        People in glass houses shouldnt throw nude parties.

        I'm enjoying your remodeling.
