When my friend was looking for a dog she ran into one of these. She flat out told them that she was poor and didnt have the money to pay for shipping. They still insisted on her taking the puppy. I told her it was a scam because anyont who was really looking to place a puppy would not send one to someone who flat out said they were poor.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste very good with ketchup.

Do not enter a battle of wits unarmed.

NEVER play leapfrog with a unicorn.

Would have been interesting to see what showed up at your doorstep.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Seen on a tshirt - “If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic”

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
