    Modified Sayings

    Here are three of mine - please add yours -

    Original: Practice makes perfect
    Mine: Practice sometimes makes better
    Mine: Practice convinced me I don't want to do it any more

    (According to many - Only God is perfect - so how can my practicing make anything perfect?)

    Original: Live and learn
    Mine: Learn and live

    Original: When an animal is neutered, many say "It's been fixed"
    Mine: My pet was modified. (I don't think the animal thought it was broken or needed repairing.)
    Mine: My pet was castrated/neutered/spayed/had a pan hysterectomy. (In the case of a male, deballed)

    Original: What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.

    Revised: What doesn't kill you, doesn't kill you. (From the musical "Next To Normal")

    Practice makes perfect only if you practice perfectly.

    I like the Far Side cartoon where the dog is telling his friend he is going to get "tutored."

    Mine: When the Lord closes a door, he opens a window but the hallway is hell.
