Fun With Clichés

1885_punch_head_toss

“Extract from a cartoon by Priestman Atkinson, from the Punch Almanack for 1885, mocking clichéd expressions in the popular literature of the time”

 

The following was written for a challenge over at V.J.’s called:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #86: cliché

 

The grass is always greener

or so they say

But my grass is a labor of love

 

A little bird told me just the other day

A little of this, a little of that

Goes a long way

 

A penny saved, is a penny earned

After all, it’s a no brainer

 

A place for everything and everything in its place

is a sight for sore eyes
