Holding my tongue always leaves a salty tang in my mouth and a sticky feeling on my fingers.

universalmom on 2014-01-20 10:16:02
Looks pretty humorous too :)

be on your toes every minute if you're walking on eggshells

Be on your toes every minute if you're very short.

LLapp on 2014-11-13 10:19:47
Make good what?

Ballerinas??

be on your toes every minutes and in a short while you will get a cramp

"One of the advantages bowling has over golf is that you seldom lose a bowling ball."
Don Carter

dovid1946 on 2015-05-22 08:58:39
There have been an abundance of golf quotes on this site , as well as a plethora of quotes about fishing. I hope this will be the first and last of the bowling quotes.

kb83 on 2015-11-16 07:42:14
Yes, please spare us by striking them.

How is it diplomatic to tell someone to go to hell?

Bansai, I'm shocked that your spices are not in alpha order.

Beagle on 2015-03-05 09:57:31
I liked my "slice of wickedness" better. And by the way, my spices ARE in alphabetical order!

Wonderful limerick from kb83!
 
I searched online for each line of kb83's verse and came up with nothing, so I assume it's an original. Brilliant!!


"Reach for the stars, even if you have to stand on a cactus." Susan Longacre

kb83 on 2015-10-07 04:24:12
I tried to jump over a cactus/ My quadruceps needed the practus./ I'd no cause to fear it/ But soon lost my spirit / With my corpus no longer intactus.

As a kid I once had an idea about how to catapult my bike across the creek. It is probably best that it was never tried.

BrainCellKeeper on 2014-11-29 15:56:28
37 seconds - montyb, sounds like an episode of Jackass.

jnoodles on 2015-05-29 14:33:01
montyb I'll get my video camera and build the catapult. All you have to do is show up on a bike!

montyb on 2016-01-03 19:05:13
It is so good to have friends.

wvwoman 04-20-2016 03:24 PM

thanks, aerie
 
that was a great one, aerie--thanks for posting!

aerie 04-20-2016 03:41 PM

Thank you for saying so, wvwoman.
My favorite part of solving a cryptogram is getting to see what other solvers said. I'm new to this site, but have already laughed myself silly. I left a few comments myself, but I think they might have been deleted when the computer system wiped out the scores. It definitely deleted the forum posts that were made when I first joined.
