It's not an adage either.
Evil will always win because good is stupid. Yes, that includes you.

Franc, you ignorant slut!

An adage, according to Merriam-Webster Online, is:
--------------------------------------------
Main Entry: ad
He came, he saw, he *poin*-ed and laughed.

Mine's an adage, according to the above definition because:
A) Franc is here
B) Franc is "Fatty"
C) Therefore "Fatty" is here. i.e., "It's Fatty!"

a well noted observation.

Not all oil. On a related note, where does Baby oil come from?

Keep telling yourself that, Angry Inch. You might believe it someday.

I keep reading, and still no adage. Are you guys illiterate or what ? Do I need to explain what an adage is ?

This is quite possibly the stupidest thing Franc has ever posted. I mean, just read the bloody thread! PM has already posted the exact definition of the bloody word!

But no one except me seem to understand it. Otherwise, it'd be bloody simple for you guys to post adages now would it ?

How about this, Franc. Go and tell us why what makes everything <i>not</i> adages, instead of just claiming that they aren't. You might get some more support there.

Okay.

Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime.

I realize that's a simple proverb, and not necessarily an adage (although the two can be synonimous in some contexts), but my understanding is that Franc believes that a saying=a proverb=an adage. Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

And no, I'm not disagreeing at all with Pharaoh's definition. I'm just trying to understand WHAT, exactly, Franc disagrees with about it.

Aw, Frank's not disagreeing with my <I>definition</I>, per se. He's disagreeing with me on principle. It's his raison d'etre.

And he wonders why we keep telling him he's giving Republicans a bad name.

This from someone who doesn't even know what an adage is. Gee, I feel so bad. :roll:

Urge... to... talk... like... William... Shatner... rising...

Wait...no it isn't. Although it would have it's advantages. Like using phasers to vaporize Franc, or using the ships massive databases to show him that PM's definition of adage was *gasp* correct!
