Yea yea, I know. I've been delinquent in my mixed metaphors. however, I have a lot of friends that are much more productive than me. Here is a new batch that I hope you will enjoy:
What's good for the goose isn't good for a wild goose chase.

From Jen M:
Someone asked me, "Hey do you have tickets to the gun show? Cuz those pythons are sick!" Hello mixed metaphor!
A glass half full is better than no loaf at all.
Up shit creek without a pot to piss in.
I just thought of one:
People who see the glass as half full shouldn't throw stones.
