Proverbial Humour

Found these in a long-unused email inbox, thought I'd share it here:

New Proverbs
  1. If you're too open-minded, your brains will fall out.
  2. Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, if he gets angry, he'll be a mile way - and barefoot.
  3. Going to church doesn't make you a holy person any more than going to a garage makes you a mechanic.
  4. Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
  5. If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.
  6. A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.
  7. Men are from earth. Women are from earth. Deal with it.

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

Thanks!
