Proverbs have long been humanity's sound bites. Snippets of sagacity, proverbs presumably sum up the best thinking on a subject in a terse, inspiring way.Okay, so not always. Through the years, some of our most famous wits have used and abused well-worn sayings, adapting them for their own comic purposes. Groucho Marx, Mae West, and Joan Rivers are only a few of the well-known perpetrators featured in the hilarious new book Do Unto Others . . . Then Run. Some examples:o Love thy neighbor as thyself, but choose your neighborhood. -Louise Bealo A watched pot is usually owned by someone without cable. -Philip J. Frankenfeldo History repeats itself. Historians repeat each other. -Philip GuedallaDo Unto Others is sure to appeal to everyone who enjoys wordplay, puns, twisted meanings, and quick comebacks.
