Deranged proverbs

The New York Times had a contest: submit a rearranged pair of proverbial phrases. The entries yeilded some gems, as reported in Sunday's Week in Review. Here are my favorites. See if they don't provoke some laughter and some reflection.

Living well makes the heart grow fonder.

Absence is the best revenge.


Nature abhors a home.

There’s no place like a vacuum.


Honesty is no excuse.

Ignorance of the law is the best policy.


A little knowledge is a friend indeed.

A friend in need is a dangerous thing.


Youth is wasted on a winner.

Everyone hates the young.


There is no honor among the meek.

Thieves shall inherit the earth.


Each to an island.

No man is his own.


Seeing is in the eye of the beholder.

Beauty is believing.


It isn’t over `til you’re having fun.

Time flies when the fat lady sings.


Life is the soul of wit.

Brevity is short.


It takes two to raise a child.

It takes a village to tango.
