Default What's the difference between Unattributed, Proverb, and Anonymous?

"The most beautiful things in the universe are the starry heavens above us and the feeling of duty within us." Proverb

puffybob on 2011-05-02 04:08:56
Where is the line between "Unattributed" and "Proverb"?

Carrot on 2012-10-26 14:51:21
Indian Proverb. Proverb: a short, generally known sentence of folk origin which contains wisdom, truth, morals, and traditional views. Unattributed: not having been ascribed or attributed to someone.

Default nice long thread about poetry and food

"Any healthy man can go without food for two days -- but not without poetry. "
Charles Baudelaire

Lily H on 2012-03-18 22:16:02
I think most men would probably prefer to have the food and not the poetry.

montyb on 2012-05-24 13:30:56
I like to grill some poetry a couple time a week.

bansaisequoia on 2012-09-04 16:11:51
And, if you slather some hemp on it, you've got a great source of protein, fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids. http://m.newhope360.com/site-files/n...st-protein.jpg

If you have barbecue, you don't need any pottery, you can eat it with your fingers.

locodad on 2014-03-08 10:23:32
after two days of not eating you might eat the book of poetry with his author. I wonder which one would taste better.I am laughing while I am writing this

wvwoman on 2014-04-13 00:54:40
pottery?

"He who makes quick use of the moment is a genius of prudence. "
Johann Kaspar Lavater

oh darn, I guess I took a nap during this one.

wordfairy on 2014-10-09 01:32:52
It's ok, Abra, since normally, you are a genius of prudence.

montyb on 2014-10-18 07:21:15
I prudently took a nap during this one.

LLapp on 2015-10-05 15:14:31
Only a fellow prude would come up with a compliment like "genius of prudence."

abra on 2016-05-05 06:21:52
Managed to stay awake this time, but I swear, I'm still a genius of prudence.

mmfs83 on 2016-09-06 09:37:55
Prudence really got me.

mmfs83 on 2017-02-15 04:18:50
Not this time. I try to always be prudent.

blueladyblue on 2018-03-20 09:08:47
Above average. Still, I made juicy use of the moment.

"Man embraces in his makeup all the natural orders; he's a squid, a mollusk, a sucker and a buzzard; sometimes he's a cerebrate."
Martin H. Fischer

universalmom on 2014-02-05 13:35:34
Hahaha...this is awesome!

abra on 2014-11-22 12:05:11
I AM NOT A SQUID.

dovid1946 on 2015-01-31 04:31:14
It was P.T. Barnum who said that there's a sucker born every minute. He did not say that there's a buzzard born every minute.

IlLatino on 2016-01-08 04:27:00
There hasn't been a squid in my family for two generations. We had a cerebrate once, but we all went straight home after the cerebration.

kb83 on 2017-01-06 03:22:49
cerebrate is a verb meaning to reason. But it does sound like an order of animals. Cerebrate is also what Mickey Rooney complained about in "Breakfast at Tiffanys".

Bethmarywhite on 2017-04-10 01:13:23
Funny comments!

Who is this anonymous, and why does he have so many friends that don't know him?

He's too busy working at Hallmark to call them.
