Aneqdotes and True Lies

A lie in the middle :- 
How many years' did you work in the coal mines lazy Roger ?
Reply ' Well 27 years and proud of it.
What about the 25 years you had off in the middle ? !

You can lead a horse to water but it does not mean it will drink

You cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear

Too many cooks soil the broth

Count your fingers backwards. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 and five on the other hand makes 
a total of 11 fingers . !

My father used to say :- 
You can lead me with a silk thread but don't drive me with a stick.
