I really like Girl’s second panel aphorism (like, a whole lot). Wordplay touches my feeble English major heart.
If success tastes like simulated lemonade, then what does it smell like?
I saw a T-shirt that read, “If live doesn’t give you lemons and sugar your lemonade is going to suck.” No it was, “If life doesn’t give you sugar and water, your lemonade is gonna suck.” or was it, “Unless life also gives you water and sugar, your lemonade is gonna suck.”
I always thought success tasted more like Pepsi Max.
“If you can’t say anything nice, say it online”…that’s a cross-stitched pillow just begging to be made!
For a while they tried to replace success with “new success” but it tasted horrible
The center panel made me wonder how long the word “befriend” will survive in our language.
How long before it’s replaced with “friend”(v) in all contexts?
AndyL, I “like” your scare quotes!
To Krimson: It smells like simulated lemonade.
Success tastes like putrid Macbeth heads
Those weren’t scare quotes! I was unironically quoting those words to indicate that I was speaking of those specific words verbatim an not the concept they embody!
