A bird in the hand means you’re a tree.
All that glitters doesn’t matter in the dark.
All work and no play makes Jack a lawyer.
(He probably lives in Dallas.) Curiosity
killed the cat after it cured Polio. Charity
begins when you slip her a hundred dollar bill
and ask for "Southern Hospitality."
Crime doesn’t pay. Ask Johnnie Cochran.
Cleanliness is next to Stockholm.
If a man’s home is his castle,
Arkansas is the most egregious insult to castles
since the Boston Tea Party. Actions speak louder
than fish. Blood is thicker than gasoline.
If we are the bomb, what are we exploding into?
