Unquotable quotes - II

Spare the rod and knife the wife.
Empty drums make the most deaf wise.
Penny wise Pound English.
The Polyester Stomper heals the vain woman's heel.
Eat what you can but can what doctors ban.
Let the water tap run but drain rain.
The woman, the dog and the chestnut tree, the more
you beat them the harder the bark.
Let sleeping dogs neigh.
It never rains but indoors.
Honesty is the best example of idiocy.
Two's company, three's a broad.
Make hay while the son wines.
There's no smoke without liars.
Don't count plots before they are hatched.
Preach not what you can enjoy in peace.
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a truth.
Parting makes much sweet sour.
A round peg in a square soul.
Rule Brittania, Britannia rules the knaves.
Able was I as I saw(ed) Abel.
It's a Rolling Stone that makes a fuss.
Those who tighten belts don't wear sarongs.
The high and mighty always suck with the flighty.
What's good for Peter is good for the Church.
The haiku is the silly bugger of the tanka.
The baker's dozen helps keep the poor cousin.

Cricketing jargon

The no ball is the cricket's late call.
The boundary is the sixer's mockery.
The wicket keeper bails batsmen out.
The googly makes batsmen squint through patchouli.
A leg bye makes the batsman somewhat shy.
The leg-before-wicket is when the batsman kicks-the-
bucket.
The dropped-catch can be the slip's last match.
The leg glance is a missed forward drive.
