new idea: reversed cliches

ok so this last weekend while I was in Williamsburg, my friends and I were inspired to create our own “ironic t-shirt” line. if these hipsters on the side of the street can make $ with these bogus shirts, then so can we.

so our idea is to pretty much ruin cliches, or popular sayings that frankly we think are stupid or don’t make any sense. so I’m going to share with you some that we came up with. let me know what you think. I’m sure no one will think this is amusing besides my friends and I but that’s ok, they’re just jokes.

so here we go:

Cliche: It is what it is.
Reversal: It is what it isn’t

Cliche: I do what I do.
Reversal: I do what I don’t.

Cliche: Life is About _______
Reversal: Life is About Not Saying What Life is About.

Cliche: There are other fish in the sea.
Reversal: There were never any fish in the sea to begin with.

Cliche: A picture is worth a thousand words.
Reversal: A thousand words is worth a picture.

Cliche: Save the drama for your mama.
Reversal: Your mama saved her drama for me; Your mama gave me her drama.

Cliche: As per usual…
Reversal: As per calm it down.

Cliche: I say tomato, you say tomatoe.
Reversal: I say tomato, you say tomato.

Cliche: Easy, Peasy, Lemon-Squeazy
Reversal: Difficult, Difficult, Lemon-Difficult

Cliche: A penny saved is a penny earned.
Reversal: A penny saved is a penny.

Cliche: Cheap Trick
Reversal: Expensive Illusion

Cliche: No Way Jose
Reversal: Yes Way Joseph



This site is AMAZING.  I’m pretty much over Twitter at this point, and this site is a good example of why.  It finally provides a platform to mock the people that post their overly self-important tweets, and, in Digg-like fashion, allows people to vote or “back pat” the most over-the-top.  Some of my favorites:

@serafinowicz: went to the gym this morning. As I left, everyone said I was the best!

@brettschulte: I gave my cleaning lady a raise today, even though she didn’t ask, as my own little contribution to fighting the recession.

@syedbalkh: Everywhere I go people are telling me that I should start modeling. I guess I am really that good looking. lol
