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!
