@numi This is my favourite joke to tell. I don't know if anyone likes hearing me tell it, but...
Somebody once told me
There's a statue in the Gobi
That's mostly gone from over the knees

[note: EC in this one photo]
some malaphors I think about:
-we'll burn that bridge when we get to it
-if you can't stand the bull, get out of the china shop
-where there's smoke, there's mirrors

-burning daylight at both ends
-apples to apples, dust to dust
-a stone in the hand is worth two birds in the bush
