    "Tomorrow is a better day." - like Annie said: the point about tomorrow is that it hasn't had a chance to go bad yet.
    The more commonly used alternative, "Tomorrow is another day." means much the same: it refers to future potential.

    It's piss, of course, and it didn't originally come in the form of a warning, but as a comment on the rash actions of someone who brought foreseeable difficulty and unpleasantness on himself. Like "stirring up a hornet's nest" or "tilting at windmills" or "fighting city hall"
    The warning would go:
    Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.

    How about "No news is good news."?

    Sitting in front of a blank TV screen the other day my mate asked me what I was doing

    "No TV is good TV" I replied

    Baby on board

    Shouldn't it be buckled up in a child restraint chair?

    And why are you sailing a boat on a highway?

    I saw that once. On a particularly rainy weekend, a car hit a boat on the highway.

    (Full disclosure: The boat was on a trailer. It was still pretty funny though.)

    No word on whether or not there was a baby on board.

    The daughter of a friend was run over by a boat at an intersection. She was a slow child, wearing no label.

    "God never gives you anything you can't handle".

    45,000 suicides a year in the USA tends to be at odds with this saying.

    Someone once said that to me after a family tragedy, I really wanted to punch them in the face and say that "God told me you could handle this!" Course I just smiled, because they were trying to be comforting - but damn that is a stupid thing to say...

    'The proof is in the pudding"
    Though I will say that one of my favorite restaurants on the Oregon coast serves a bread pudding with whiskey sauce, and they're not stingy with the"proof".

    That's a slipshod rendering of
    "The proof of the pudding is in the eating." (Doesn't matter how good it looks; it's how it tastes that counts.)

    Pretty much anything said about God is bound to be.... less than logical, isn't it?

    God sent his son into the world so that we could kill him and then God could forgive us for eating shrimp and he wouldn' t have to send us to the hell that He created.

    The exception proves the rule.


    Once upon a time this made sense. What it meant was the exception tests the rule. People repeat this now meaning the exception shows the rule is true/accurate/good which is absurd.
