New Joke Contest — Slightly Twisted Cliches

The theme for our November joke contest is:   SLIGHTLY TWISTED CLICHES.

Twist a well-known phrase by leaving out one letter, or changing one letter, or adding one letter.   Not two letters.   Just one.

For example, a cliche:

ON A DUMB GUY AND HIS SWEETHEART
A fool and his honey are soon parted.

ON SALES AT A JEWELRY STORE
All that glitters is not sold.

ON THE VALUE OF EXERCISE
A jog is man’s best friend.

ON A CHAIN OF BAD EVENTS
For lack of a shoe a hose was lost.

Write as many lines as you can.  And then write ten more.  Pick your best three and submit them for our TOP THREE recognition. You can submit more than three lines and the additional lines will be eligible for Honorable Mention recognition.
