What did the raspberry say to the blueberry? Breathe, breathe!!!
A hangover is the wrath of grapes.
When two egotists meet, it’s an I for an I.
A bicycle can’t stand on its own because it is two tired.
Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
In democracy your vote counts. In feudalism your count votes.
A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion.
“Most cars on our roads have only one occupant, usually the driver.” (Carol Malia, BBC Anchorwoman)
