Wise Sayings From Dane

Brandon sat the boys down a couple of nights ago and asked the boys to complete a few sentences, recite old wisdom, if you will. We gave them the first part of the sentence, and had them complete it. Here's some of what Dane came up with:

Strike while the...guard is down. (nice strategic planning, Dane!)
It's always darkest before...1:00. (?)
Never underestimate the power of...pooping. (yeah, an 8 year old boy answered these)
You can lead a horse to water can't give it food. (except when you can give it food)
Don't bite the hand an animal hand. (bad idea to bite animal hands. bad idea.)
No news is...bad news. (except for when it's not)
A miss is as good as a...try. (I don't even know how this one is supposed to end)
If you lie down with dogs, you'll...get gassy. (again with the bathroom functions)
Love all, trust...God. (hmmm.)
The pen is mightier than the...pencil. (yes, yes it is)
An idle mind is...a lazy mind. (truth!)
Where there's smoke, there's...heat. (true)
Happy is the bride a farter. (I can personally attest to this one)
A penny saved is...better than zero cents. (math whiz)
Two's company, three' (WHAT??)
Don't put off till tomorrow (WHAT??)
Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and...fart. (but only if you're crying really hard)
There are none so blind alligator. (are alligators blind? did I miss something?)
Children should be seen and not...hurt. (psa courtesy of Dane)
A bird in the a diamond. (why birds never land on Dane's hand)
Better late than...gone. (in some cases)

and my personal favorite:

When the blind lead the get beat up. (I'm still laughing at that one. It reminds me of the sign at the bank.)

Fun little game to play with your kids. Next up (hopefully not a month from now, thanks, awesome computer) Aidan's answers!
