Sharp Words [socs]


Not the sharpest crayon in the shed, are ya?

You’re mixing metaphors, buddy. Perhaps your elevator doesn’t go to the penthouse any longer.

Penthouse, shmenthouse. You know what they say about stones…

Sticks and stones, man.

Glass houses is all I’m saying.

My glass is half-full because I’m an optimist.

I think you need an optometrist, pal. That glass is half-full of pee.

It’s lemonade, ya doofus. That’s what we cheery types make when life gives us lemons.

Cheery, cherry, dingleberry. Lemons are for losers! I have a banana in my pocket.

You’re probably just happy to see me.

I’ll be happy to see the last of you, is what. Don’t let the door hit ya.

That door? The one with the armed guard?

“You’re talking to yourself again,” the guard said. “I’m telling the doctor you need more meds.”

Mom always spoils our fun.

I know, right?

  1. I was curious, so I did a bit of hunting, and yes, it is that asbestos, and it was found in Playskool brand crayons, hence the picture.

  2. I actually understood most of your post Paula and I am thinking that I may need to see a psychiatrist because of that.

  8. Haha! I just came across “your elevator doesn’t go to the top” in a political discussion (of course) and I think it’s my new favorite. Sharpening crayons always makes me feel conflicted: I like a nice point, but I don’t want to waste crayon on not-coloring!
