Anti proverbial Table Topics

TM Monica from London has a thing for proverbs. Or may be not. We couldn’t assess it correctly because she used proverbs for her table topics but with a twist. Read her submission below.

Have you noted that there is a stand format on which all our time proof proverbs were created? Somebody would usually take a relatable concept and used it as a metaphor to explain a higher concept. For example – a stitch in time saves nine. This I belief is unfair to the tailor who gets no credit for making the stitch. Today I will present some proverbs with no higher concept, just the plain truth. Any of you can volunteer to speak for 1 to 2 minutes on these absolute truths of life. Let’s begin.

  1. A chain is only as strong as the iron it is made of
  2. A journey of thousand miles is usually made on a plane
  3. If there is a will I want to be in it
  4. A picture is worth only on instagram
  5. Don’t judge a book by its price
  6. Don’t put all your eggs in your stomach
  7. Lightning never strikes a building with earthing.
