Cliche' Oh Cliche'


cli·ché [klee-shey, kli-]

1. a trite, stereotyped expression; a sentence or phrase, usually expressing a popular or common thought or idea, that has lost originality, ingenuity, and impact by long overuse, as sadder but wiser, or strong as an ox.

2. (in art, literature, drama, etc.) a trite or hackneyed plot, character development, use of color, musical expression, etc.

3. anything that has become trite or commonplace through overuse.

I love Cliche's. I love saying them. I love it when other people say them. I love everything about Cliche's.

You can't have your cake and eat it too

That's the way the cookie crumbles

Wake up and Smell the Coffee

Not for all the Tea in China

All's fair in love and War

So when you see my overuse of Cliche's on the pages of my blog: Yes, it's intentional.

well Jenny, your admission of this is the best thing since sliced bread! really! I'm betting the farm that I'll see more one liners on your blog, as I've never noticed them before! Hopefully your eager readers won't expect them all of the time, or perhaps you will feel you have bitten off more than you could chew!
And because the cleverness has just left me and I can't seem to incorporate any more into this comment I will just leave you with a few loved by moi:
-Don't put the cart before the horse.
-Can't tell his ass from a hole in the ground.
-Gone to pot.
