Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
The following discussion is not meant in any way, shape, or form to detract from the insight or wisdom offered by either past or present contributors of Quote of the Day discussions.
Instead, it is meant to reflect, however briefly, on those quotes that make little sense or are funny when taken within or without the full context.
Please offer up your own contributions, as often as you care to.
I will start with this classic: “My grandpa always said: ‘Whenever one door closes, another door opens.'” Great guy — horrible cabinet maker.
Or this one: “Let sleeping dogs lie.” In my household, we forbid our dogs to fib. Plus, if a dog is asleep, how can he tell a lie?
Oxymorons are also encouraged (as long as they do not come from classified “military intelligence”).
