1. Money doesn't buy happiness. Even if this is true, misery is insured without it. This is still a stupid quote as money doesn't buy anything... People do.
2. The summit of happiness is reached when a person is ready to be what he is. What if you're a scumbag? Or how about a would be child molester coming to the realization of what he is after getting his ass kicked all over a playground by a couple of enraged parents? Does this eureka moment produce a sense of happiness?
3. He jumped the shark (or) Don't jump the shark. What's wrong with 'Don't overreact' or 'take your time'? This sounds more like what you'd say about a suicide. For example, One would say "Where's Stan?" the other answers "You didn't hear? Last Tuesday he jumped the shark." Wouldn't that be a more likely outcome from jumping a shark? Death?
4. Don't rain on my parade! This usually comes when someone is given news that he or she doesn't like. Well, if you can't deal with the truth, you don't deserve to have your own personal dumb ass parade! Stand on the sidewalks like everyone else that had enough sense to bring an umbrella.
I'll do some more of these as they come to mind. Until then, stay safe and remember... Never punch a gift horse in the mouth with a roll of wooden nickles.
Horses have four horseshoes... They must be the luckiest creatures of them all. Hmmmm...
