Synopsis: Stun your friends into silence as you take the humble proverb and transform it into a display of linguistic acrobatics. Why use just one word when ten will do? If you want to sound as though you?ve swallowed a dictionary, here are 100 simple proverbs and their verbose translations for you to memorize and recite at dinner parties and other social gatherings. Instead of saying "Never look a gift horse in the mouth," go for ?Never perform an oscular examination on a gratuitous solid-hoofed plant-eating quadruped.?

From the Publisher: ?Never perform an oscular examination on a gratuitous solid?hoofed plant?eating quadruped.? (Never look a gift horse in the mouth.)

Stun your friends into silence as you take the humble proverb and transform it into a display of linguistic acrobatics. Why use just one word when ten will do? If you want to sound as though you?ve swallowed a dictionary, here are 100 simple proverbs and their verbose translations for you to memorize and recite at dinner parties and other social gatherings. You?ll be invited back again and again!

Also by Michael Powell, 100 Pretentious Nursery Rhymes.
