    Oh well waste not, want not

    But a cliché is full of truth, otherwise it wouldn't be a cliché. :wink:

  • well obviously, you cant make an omelette without breaking some eggs
  • at the end of the day, with cliches, the proof is in the pudding
    What wheels...? Wheelsmith.co.uk!
  • I don't know much about cliches. But I know what I like
    Believe that a farther shore
    Is reachable from here.
    Believe in miracles
    And cures and healing wells

    I find them incredibly useful! If I had to do without them I'd literally die!
  • Has to be.....

    "Further into the fog I fall
    Well, I was just
    Following you!
    When you said :

    "Do as I do and scrap your fey ways"
    (Dial-A-Cliché)
    "Grow up, be a man, and close your mealy-mouth!"
    (Dial-A-Cliché)
    Dial-A-Cliché
    Dial-A-Cliché

    But the person underneath
    Where does he go ?
    Does he slide by the wayside ?
    Or ... does he just die ?

    And you find that you've organized
    Your feelings, for people
    Who didn't like you then
    And do not like you now
    But still you say :

    "Do as I do and scrap your fey ways"
    (Dial-A-Cliché)
    "Grow up, be a man, and close your mealy-mouth!"
    (Dial-A-Cliché)
    "The Safe way is the only way !
    There's always time to change, son !"
    I've changed
    But I'm in pain !
    Dial-A-Cliché "

    Complaining about cliches is exactly the sort of thing the Nazis would have done!
    Faster than a tent.......
  • Clichés are like buses, you wait for one for ages and then....(etc, etc)
  • If you're gonna use a cliche, make sure you use it at 110%

    When I was a lad, we didn't have cliches.

    True, things didn't come ready made in those days. We used to have to make them with sticks and bits of string and then we had to run them through a handmade treadmill for 150 hours until they started to turn into truisms. And that's when the real work began.

    You were posh having string.

    We had to use hair we stole from the dead and had no treadmills to turn em into truisms.

    Bloody posh southerners, you never had it hard

  • It's a game of two halves.

    Or I hope it is anyway :!: :!:
  • At the end of the day, you can have too much of a good thing.
