So, now that you've found the cliche you're looking for, this suggests a bigger question:
What is a cliche?
Oh, the ways to answer that question! It is something we hear all the time. George Orwell would probably
say that it is something that we should never say or think! Lets try to be creative here!
A cliche, then, is really just an unoriginal thought. But unoriginal thoughts are so much fun --
and often, they capture timeless wisdom of the ages.
Thus, we can play a fun game: with every phrase we hear or read (or even think!), we can
ask ourselves, is this a cliche or not?. Once you start doing this, everything
you hear turns into a cliche!
Actually, I am now thinking of forming the Cliche Brigade -- where we are on the lookout
for silly and fun cliches! Have you heard any recently? Let me know!
I love discussing cliches with everyone and anyone! If you want to have some cliched
conversations, then send me an email: morgan.com !!!!
To me, the web is just a big conversation -- as cliched as it is! -- so, we
should talk in order to learn more about cliches. Plus, as you have surely
seen from the web pages, I am a friendly guy! Life is short so lets just
be good and have fun... as cliched as it is.
Now that you have come to the end of this Cliche Finder, I would recommend you either
search for another cliche, or, you explore
one of my other fun web pages!
