The always hysterial IowaHawk has a humorous post over at BigHollywood, putting forth 3rd world proverbs that you can use to impress your friends. Check it out here.
“Beware the eye of the tiger, for he is a survivor, and he knows many power ballads.”
“Give a man a fish, he will eat today. Promise a man a million fish, he will contribute heap big wampum to your tribal election campaign fund.”
“The single lotus blossom that brushes against river jade can defeat an army of steel fire-dragon. Well, okay, maybe that’s just the opium talking.”
“The lazy monkey mocks the noble lion from the safety of the baobob tree — until the lion pulls out his surprise chain saw. Who’s laughing now, monkey? But it turns out the joke is on both of them, because here comes Marlin Perkins and his surprise tranquilizer darts.”
Not sure where Iowahawk gets it, but he is reliably funny.
