A first grade teacher collected well -known proverbs.
She had twenty-five students in her class and she
presented each child in her class the first
half of a proverb and asked them to come up with the
remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these
were actually done by first graders. Their insight
may surprise you. While reading these, keep in mind
that these are first graders .....6-year-olds,
because the last one is classic!

I had already finnished my coffee, but I did grin. Now I am going to bore the crap out of my employees trying to relate these in spanish. I am guessing about 85% of the humor will be lost to the cultural devide.

Funny read but I don't believe they are coming out of 6 yrs old children. Some folks make them up just to amage you. I am not saying hillbilly made them up, but I think someone else did.

Don't be such a pessimist, my friend

Obviously you never saw the interviews that Bill Cosby did with little children. "Kids say the darndest things" was the name of the show.

This stuff happens. Althought, I have to admit, it is also within the "realm" of possibility.

Look, you and me got to talk--I am currently trying to do business with some Pakistani firms....You have my number??
