Tall Tale Proverbs – Fibbing Friday Challenge

Man, 2 weeks of 12th Grade have passed by and I can’t believe we have the 1st term exams in the 1st week of July. Wanna know what the worst thing about this is? My summer vacations in May decided to become The Flash and it disappeared within 0.9 seconds! Can someone please explain what on earth is even going on now?

While debating whether or not to post a doodle or a short story today, I just happened to find something really interesting and hilarious and decided to go for it. Hint: it’s in the title of this post.

For today’s post: I shall fib that today’s Friday instead of Monday, cause I decided to join this really fun writing challenge called “Fibbing Friday”. This activity is alternately hosted by two bloggers, namely Di @ pensivity101 and Frank (or PCGuyIV), where the main objective is to weave a bunch of tall tales around a certain set of prompts and get away with them, all in the spirit of fun. Even though this particular set of prompts I’m picking up are a week old, I thought it’d be fun if I spun up a bunch of stories on a set of well known proverbs, and trust me when I say that I had fun coming up with new versions of them.

So, without further ado: step into the parlor of hilarious versions of 10 well known proverbs. Enjoy!

  1. A stitch in time saves a mini heart attack when you nearly miss a step on a flight of stairs.
  2. Too many cooks are what I need when I empty all my quarantine snacks within a week.
  3. Many hands make a specs-y person grossed out once people manhandle their glasses and return them.
  4. A bird in the hand is a good accessory for a picture until it craps on the said hand.
  5. Actions speak louder, but they’re silenced by your Spotify rewind playlist and slideshow.
  6. All that glitters will 1000% turn you into a disco ball.
  7. People in glass houses invest in a lot of gear to protect themselves from the greenhouse effect.
  8. Fools rush in to act like they’re in a drag race on a busy road.
  9. Don’t count your chickens unless you’re the owner of a farm.
  10. Give them an inch of your bed-space and see how you’ll be kicked out of the bed by morning.

So that’s it for today, and I hope you had fun reading these new proverbs. Don’t forget to comment which one’s your favourite tall tale!

Want to join the challenge? Just click on this link to view the original post, and just tag your post with “FibbingFriday” once you’ve answered the questions to grant other viewers access to your post.

  1. This post made me laugh out loud so much! Thank you for making my day, what a cool idea for a challenge πŸ˜‚ I think that two, four, six and nine are my favourites. My ultimate favourite was ‘the bird in hand’ one though – that one had me hiccuping with laughter!
