If one is good, two is better. Can you help me come up with "doublewise" (combined) sayings?

Asked by phaedryx (6126points) July 13th, 2010

I had a lot of fun with the “doublewise” trend on twitter recently, where people would combine sayings, clichés, folk wisdom, etc. into new sayings. I thought it would be fun to try out here. Here are some examples:

Revenge is a dish best served on the shoulders of giants.

The bigger the apple, the farther it falls from the tree.

The early bird catches the cake and eats it too.

Don’t throw the baby out before the swine.

Better the devil you know than the devil with a blue dress on.

If at first you don’t succeed, early to bed.

(lurve for any that make me laugh)
