Confucious say...

Man who drops watch in toilet bound to have shitty time
Man who fart in church sit in own pew


Man who digs for gold in nose take out gilded finger
Man who go to bed with sex problem wake up with solution in hand
Man who walk through airport turnstile sideways going to Bangkok

Man who go to bed with itchy bottom wake up with smelly finger
Man with hand in pocket not necessarily looking for change.

Naked man fears no pick pocket.

Best way to prevent hangover is to stay drunk.

He who eats crackers in bed get crummy sleep.
Man who sneezes without tissue takes matters into his own hands.
Man who run in front of car get tired.
Man who run behind car get exhausted.
Wise man never play leapfrog with a unicorn.
He who sniffs coke drowns.
Man who piss into wind get wet.
Man who speaks with forked tongue should not kiss balloons
Never eat yellow snow.
Man who put head on Rail Road track to listen for train likely
to end up with splitting headache.
He who lives in glass house dresses in basement.
Man with one chopstick go hungry.
Man who go to bed with diarrhoea wake up in deep shit.
A bird in hand makes hard to blow nose.
Baby conceived on back seat of car with automatic transmission grow up to be shiftless.
Baseball very funny game--man with 4 balls no can walk!!
Butcher who back into meat grinder get a little behind in his orders.
Elevator smell different to midget.
Fly who sit on toilet seat get pissed off.

Man who fish in other man's well often catch crabs.
Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. Mark Twain
