Clichés Upgraded

Clichés by definition are worn out phrases, but often endure in recollection because of their metaphysical or metaphorical imagery. Therefore, many of them can breathe new life by expanding the messages with updated applications.

Here are some examples:

  • You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but you can lead him away with a golden handshake
  • Opposites attract, which means you have to be careful wearing magnets
  • A diamond in the rough is found only on the most elite golf courses
  • I don’t mind as much being scared out of my wits as long as I’m not wearing them
  • Every cloud has a silver lining, but just try extracting it
  • You may not have a care in the world, but eventually the drugs wear off
  • The writing on the wall is usually removable if glossy paint was used
  • Watch for special glasses coming soon to help read between the lines
  • Haste makes waste, but that’s not as discomforting as what waste makes
  • Waking up on the wrong side of the bed means you may be ambidextrous
