When Life Gives You…

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:52 am by Ian

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

When life gives you pears, march in a parade.

When life gives you mixed greens, lob a grenade.

When life gives you platters, don’t feel betrayed. (groan)

When life gives you foreigners, send foreign aid.

When life sends an invite, you need not invade.

When life double-crosses, call off the crusade.

When life gives you squares, set up a blockade.

When life seems revealing, it’s just masquerade.

go wild. Extra points to anyone who manages to use “general agreement on tariffs and trade” to good effect. The closest I got was “When life establishes a multinational production and shipping network with differing local costs and propensities to consume…”

    When life gives you 105 cards without a single “ace,” don’t be discouraged, you can still take fifth place.

    When the director asks you to cast a morally upstanding father figure in your B movie, call Dennis Quaid.

    Also, less appropriately, though to better effect:

    When life gives you blockage, try colonnade.
