Oh, the snark!

The redoubtable and ever-brilliant Iowahawk has done it again. He takes the allegedly proverb-illustrating Kenyan statue President Obama keeps on his desk, and runs the metaphor ragged!

A few examples of his take on proverbial wisdom around the world:

"If you want to travel fast, travel alone. If you want to travel far, travel together. If you want to travel in comfort, fake an ankle sprain and convince the other travelers to carry you."

"Do not curse the crow who has stolen your chili; tomorrow his rectum will curse the dawn."

"Do not waste your time talking to the yak. Because yakkity yak don't talk back."

"Working together, two men can do the work of three. The trick is convincing those two other suckers to work together."

"The power of the leader is like his loincloth: worn too tight it will ride up and chafe, worn too loose it will expose all his junk."

There's lots more at the link. Go read, and laugh!
