"Yeah, Ill clean my room, when pigs fly" This
is one of the remarks that people say everyday. "When Lobsters
bark" Someone could just as easily say something like "No"
and sound just as intelligent.
You see pigs will never fly and Lobsters, well as far as I
know lobsters dont make any sound at all. Except for when
you put them in boiling water and then they sound as if theyre
screaming. Now you might ask, "What do pigs and lobsters
have to do with the price of tea in China?" and if you do
then youre just adding to the material. What I want to
know is, what does anything really have to do with the price
of tea in China? The answer, nothing, except maybe the quality
of tea in China and even this is vaguely related.
Everyday people mindlessly throw this sort of remarks in to
their conversations. These remarks are just skillful cop-outs
for when you really dont care about what the other person
is talking about. Sort of like "So" or "Go away"
or the ever popular "Big fat hairy deal". For any politically
correct people the last one would translate into "Large
obese hirsute agreement" But I digress
We all know how hard it can sometimes be to understand other
people, even without some sayings that are nonsense. So how about
just getting rid of them all together. Some of you may say, that
I cant have my cake and eat it to, but actually I could
always eat half of the cake and save the other half. That way
I would still have some cake left but I would have eaten some
as well. If I was really serious then I could bake two cakes
in the first place, that is if I could bake at all.
Now maybe you are just out there to confuse people, and maybe
you dont want people to know what youre really thinking.
If so may I make a suggestion for you to use on your next conversation
