A sense of humor twisted or otherwise, makes everything in life more palatable. Sometimes it feels good to say exactly what you think. Fractured Proverbs and Twisted Thoughts is just such an indulgence.

Fractured Proverbs and Twisted Thoughts takes an irreverent look at the world around us. Nothing is off limits. Therefore the Proverbs, the words of Willy Shakespeare and others are fair game, as are familiar sayings, phrases from songs, and jingles. When no known phrase was available for some improper tweaking, the labyrinthine twists of the author's mind sprang into creative mode to produce the Twisted Thoughts portion of this book.

Since we humans tend to take ourselves and our puny lives too seriously, the intent of Fractured Proverbs and Twisted Thoughts is to evoke a wry smile, a wide grin, or perhaps even out and out laughter. If we are honest, there is an invigorating sense of freedom in stating exactly what we think about any given subject, a person, or a particular event. So feel free to fall in with the rhythm and mindset of this book and indulge in a few Twisted Thoughts of your own.
