Word smiles

Here are some smiles for Sunday. They're from Steven Wright, one of my favorite stand-up comics. I love the way he plays with words.

1. What's another word for Thesaurus?

2. You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

3. It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to have to paint it.

4. I've been doing a lot of abstract painting lately, extremely abstract. No brush, no paint, no canvas, I just think about it.

5. Curiosity killed the cat, but for a while I was a suspect.

Who's your favorite comic?

Have a great Sunday!

In the paleo-internet, a list of such sayings was called a 'cookie file'.

Diagonally parked in a parallel universe.

Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket? (I had this one as a bumper sticker, one car ago.)

And many more.

My favorite comic is a fabulous man who is dead. His name was Dennis Wolfberg, and I suggest if you want a real belly laugh, go to YouTube and look him up. All of us who've ever taught get a special kick out of his routine!
