Words of Wisdom: Never lick a steak knife Can't Post

I feel in need of some words of wisdom. Preferably of the humorous (is that "humourous" in English-English?) kind. Humor being the best weapon against anger and against acting out in an immature manner (God help me), I sort of need a jolt of humorous wisdom. Maybe there are other sibs who are having trouble maintaining dignity and calm at this moment, for reasons known or unknown?

Surely I can't be the only one struggling to keep my temper about certain issues?

I found this gem: "Never lick a steak knife", which is great advice!!! Plus, as words of wisdom go, it's off its high horse, metaphorically speaking. Which I'm struggling to do (dismount from my own, as it were).

So, you have any more?

a.s. (the humor-depleted)

"an seileachan"

"And we must all bring Provisions."
"Bring what ?"
"Things to eat."
"Oh!" said Pooh happily. "I thought you said Provisions.
I'll go and tell them." And he stumped off.
