    Here in Quebec, one funny expression people say is "Donne a manger a un cochon, et il viendra chier sur ton perron"

    Word for word in english this would mean: Feed a pig, and he will shit on your porch.

    In other words, sometimes you try to be nice to people, and they don't always try to be nice to you in return.

    What funny saying do you say?

    The English version of that is "No good deed goes unpunished".

    I like to say, 'curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought her back'.

    Cause I'm cuious, and sometimes it gets me into trouble.

    When I spell out a bunch of stuff for people - my name for instance - I often end with M. O. U. S. E.! It usually gets a chuckle, but then, I'm dating myself and younger folk don't get it.

    With my butchered spanglish, I often say Hasta Huevos! Until Eggs, until a mexican friend told me that Huevos is a term that is often used in place of cojones. I wondered why I got insulted lookes in Mexico! D'oh. I think I'll change it to Hasta Queso!

    I like silliness. It helps break the day-to-day hubbub and intensity, and brings a smile.

    One day years ago when $2 bills were more common, I used to save them by folding them up and put them in my wallet incase of an emergency. One day I found myself at the checkout in a grocery without a check and without cash! I'm standing there unfolding $2 bills, realized it was Tuesday, and told the clerk, "its Twosday" which pronounces the same. She said yes, it's Tuesday. I said It sure is Twosday! Then she took my $2 bills, looked at them, looked at me, and burst out laughing! "Its Twosday!" she exclaimed.
