Posts Tagged ‘proverbs about humor’

On every quest, pack jousts and jests.

A good jest arrests the spread of over-seriousness.

Momus requests all jests be served with food — and zest.

To jest is to be blessed; to jive is to finally arrive.

Sort lies with snorts; test truth with hearts.

Long talk, no jest, undoes, the rest.

Laughter opens the door; guffaws open the soul.

Aim and fire; shoot spoofs and satire.

Jesty is besty.

Fervency craves a rest; over-earnestness aches for a simple jest.

Disgusting — it’s gut-busting.

Gauche is funny, louche is money.

A good gag, gags.

Benign crime — just kills us.

A short distance murders a long propriety.

Louche gains nothing from abstruse.

Familiarity breeds offense.

Be in poor taste and you’ll be chased.

Life is hilariously gross, rollickingly morose.

Oafish, thuggish, rudish, brutish.
