1st Annual Silly Sayings Day (Contest)
Monday, November 13th, 2023

UPDATE: The winner is…flchen!

Grumpy cat and I share a lot in common today. When I looked into the mirror first thing this morning to brush my teeth, that was my expression!

However, I’m generally a very positive person. Annoyingly so. I wake up the kids for school by singing children’s songs off-key, ignoring their groans and becoming more maniacally loud the longer they linger. Today, I think I’m grumpy because I’m in almost mid-way through the NaNoWriMo challenge and I want to take a break. I CAN’T because I refuse to be behind on my wordcount, but I also haven’t built enough of a cushion beforehand to skip a day. Wah-Wah. Get over it!

I thought maybe you could help me get in a better mood. I love jokes, but many jokes are just too long. I love witty, funny, or ironic sayings, so I thought that might be the ticket. We’re going to make our own Silly Sayings Day! The first ever, I think. Maybe it’ll become a thing! Woot!

So, let’s turn those frowns upside down! For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, share a silly saying.

Here are a couple to start us off…

Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares? — He’s a mile away, and you’ve got his shoes!
~ Billy Connolly


If a clown farts, is it funny?

    Here are a few of my favorites.
    I’m not weird. I’m limited edition.
    Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advice.
    I made a huge to-do list today. I just need to figure out who’s going to do it.

    Always be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn. In that case, always be a unicorn.

    If you have been struck by a headache, follow the instructions on the bottle. KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN

    Never make the same mistake twice. Do it six or seven times just to make sure.

    Getting older isn’t for sissies but it’s better than the alternative.

    People say money is not the key to happiness, but I have always figured if you have enough money, you can have a key made.

    It’s OK if you don’t like me. Not everyone has good taste.
    I never make the same mistake twice. I make it six or seven times, just to be sure.
    I’m on a seafood diet. I see food, and then I eat it.
