There are some common phrases out there that really don’t make sense.
“Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire.” Huh? Sounds like someone needs a lesson from Smokey the Bear. You aren’t preventing any fires if you think you can put a fire out with… more fire. Sometimes, you have to fight fire with water.
“Shoot for the moon. If you miss, you’ll land among the stars!” Whoever came up with this phrase lacks even the most rudimentary concept of space. If you shoot for the moon and miss, you will continue to careen forever into nothingness, with no way of slowing down. AND, if you do “land among the stars” after however many billions of years of floating through space, you will burn into a fiery inferno long before impact. Just don’t do it.
Another of those phrases is “Dance like Nobody’s Watching.” After watching a weird old man do just that, JibJab’s latest and greatest eCard suggests that you should probably dance like EVERYBODY’s watching. Just sayin.’
I mean, look at this collection of people who seem to be dancing like nobody’s watching. It’s not a good look.
We love Adam West, but this dance makes him look much more like a “Joker” than a Batman.
Next, who could forget Buster from Arrested Development? He definitely is dancing like no one’s watching, and we can’t condone the end result.
Here’s a crazy dance from Christian Bale in American Psycho. I mean, he was dancing like no one was watching, and his character is a psychopath. Case closed.
So as you can see, be sure to dance like everyone is watching — and be sure to send this birthday card for free, all week, as a reminder!
