These are modern times, people, as far into the future as we’ve ever been, and it’s getting later all the time. Tick-tick-tick! These days call for new ideas, new slogans and new words to live by. No more of that “a stitch in time saves nine,” nonsense. Nobody sews anymore! And forget about “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Like hell it does! It begins with a cab to the damned airport, everybody knows that. It’s high time we get some proper proverbs to reflect these shiny new times. Quick, to the point and not leaving you scratching your head trying to figure them out. And no more than 140 characters either so that even those Twitter bozos can understand them. So, in the interest of serving the public in this brave new millennium, bobcrespo.com has compiled a few modern proverbs:
