the cure for gray hair
 
"There is only one cure for gray hair. It was invented by a Frenchman. It is called the guillotine."
P. G. Wodehouse


matarisa on 2012-09-19 16:13:22
Come now. Some gray hair has been cured by baldness.

Lily H on 2012-12-17 01:53:19
My gray hair is cured by my hairdresser.

kjmcaj on 2013-03-09 20:02:31
grow old gracefully and accept it!!

Bite your tongue, kjmcaj.

montyb on 2014-07-04 05:17:02
On my driver's license, under hair color it says "flesh".

universalmom on 2015-01-15 10:36:06
Hahaha no way, really?!

mikehallbackhoe on 2015-01-28 09:03:59
I can only imagine how relieved the french were when hair dye became available

dovid1946 on 2015-02-26 05:18:39
The English used the axe for centuries before the guillotine.

abra on 2015-06-07 13:23:08
LOL, Mike.

kb83 on 2015-06-30 03:37:54
Just a little off the top please.

"Misfortune shows those who are not really friends." Aristotle

puzzleme on 2013-05-27 11:30:43
Shows them what?

montyb on 2015-06-29 17:18:38
Shows them how fortunate they are to not really be your friends.

25 letters used. Not quite funny, but....
 
"I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself."
Marlene Dietrich

PianoManGidley on 2011-02-05 11:40:44
Every letter but K!

puzzleme on 2013-05-03 05:56:30
I love quotations, too. That's half the reason I am a crypto-addict.

universalmom on 2014-02-19 13:26:23
You can see why this one got included!

locodad on 2014-03-08 16:03:47
should we go to cryptolic anynomus? only if they let us solve some cryptos so we won't fall asleep with their boring speeches. 96 secomds

nanrich on 2014-08-13 04:49:24
Hmm, which do I like more, the quote or the puzzle? Hard to say....

kb83 on 2014-09-13 15:40:52
If only she had said "like" instead of "love"!

JD_1947 on 2014-11-07 17:39:36
Marlene, quite the gal, and she's one of us too . . .

oddcouple on 2014-12-14 04:47:26
It doesn't take very long on here to finds quotes by ignorant people.

dovid1946 on 2015-03-14 17:34:44
Is there a quote out there in cryptoland that uses all the letters of the alphabet? Getting close with this one.

Annamariah on 2016-12-13 00:55:42
I have yet to encounter one.

darkyr on 2017-03-27 04:42:11
It is such a joy to have found this quote, because it is exactly what I have always thought, and everyone knows Marlene is much wiser than I am.

but what if your goal is to do cryptograms?
 
"In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it. "
Robert A. Heinlein


paulk190 on 2010-07-21 22:00:09
Strangely self referential. Enslaved by cryptograms.

Lil0 on 2013-09-01 15:10:49
Hence, cultivate only those habits you wish to have master you. [I don't remember who said that, but the phrase certainly stuck in my head!!]

abra on 2014-11-13 13:17:39
Better to be enslaved by cryptograms, than by trivia.

dddeedee on 2015-04-08 01:18:43
I thought he was talking about me doing Cryptograms!!

LLapp on 2015-12-08 18:03:47
Not to worry, he was talking about me.

tskaggs6 on 2016-10-06 15:41:59
Generally I find Heinlein to be an idiot. But in this case I think he's on to something.

munchlet on 2017-01-06 11:40:49
Whew, LLapp. What a relief that the rest of us are off the hook here. By the way, lose that hyphen.

marnita on 2017-05-23 09:32:56
As addictions go, cryptograms are probably one of the best. And yes, I agree, the hyphen should go.

puzzleme on 2013-05-03 06:19:33
Oh, Reade! You so(w) and so(w)!

vivian1874 on 2013-06-01 13:39:34
sow

abra on 2015-08-23 18:46:54
Laura still has the record for this quote. She did her last quote in April of 2010, and she is still in 17th place. WOW!

marnita on 2015-09-13 10:27:27
These sow/reap quotes always throw me for a loop.

Andy451 on 2015-10-17 13:27:59
So a spud and you reap a dud. Sow a teepee and you weap a Humvee. Sow the stash and you reap some cash. Snow a then and you reap a ten. So a tomb and you beep a mushroom. So a huh and you reap a what? So what?

wvwoman on 2015-12-18 11:16:01
andy, how hard do you hit that stash?!

sexytary on 2016-05-04 16:09:47
this is becoming a habit.

Marboy on 2017-03-14 20:39:37
That was so hard - I thought he was talking abut reading for a part

phthelen on 2017-08-25 07:29:41
824 seconds, yet 312 points - goofy.

gryhnd51 on 2017-08-30 17:41:26
Almost 5 years later and I STILL hate this quote! And Laura STILL holds the record after all these years.

phthelen 10-25-2017 02:58 PM

monty, you are hilarious.

LLapp on 2016-11-06 16:12:11
What did I just tell you? These words mean nothing. Move along.
