If you think twice, you'll be the smartest one in your family.
(Ok, first, you could have 2 stupid thoughts.  Second, maybe the rest of your family gets it the first time.)

He is not the sharpest tool in the shed, otherwise he would use himself to cut things.
Has it been three years already? Oh wait.. four, no no, five?

If you don't know what's wrong, I'm not going to tell you.
(So, I will never find out.)

Don't take any wooden nickles

Ok, who is handing out wooden nickles?
Shouldn't counterfeiters be arrested?
Why would anybody use wood to fake a nickle? 
I'd use metal slugs they pop out of metal boxes to make holes for wires.
And you had better not be taking other people's nickles in the first place.

So to recap, don't steal and don't counterfeit, well duh.

No man is an island.

Well of course not.  Even when one is swimming and surrounded on all sides by water, one doesn't qualify as a land mass.

A man is not even an archipelago.  That would just be silly.  If a man can't be one island, how could he be a chain of them.

A man can't be a peninsula either.  Of course the male has a peninsula shaped orgin, but that has nothing to do with anything that I'm rammbling about.

Sometimes I feel like I am an isthmus, but definately NOT a island.

What goes around comes around, unless acted upon by an external force.

It doesn't roll uphill.
What if you get a powerful leaf-blower?  Huh?  Huh?

He threw up his hands in disgust.

Time is an irreversible arrow. Any attempt to stop or deflect it has  failed miserably. Just ask King Ahab.

If that weren't so amusing, one might laugh.

I came, I saw, I yawned.
Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

Cheap at half the price.
Your kind is a dime a dozen.
If I had a nickle for everytime I heard that one.

(I think somebody needs a lesson in economics.)
