"Old _____never die, they just_____________."


Remember this old saying? Have fun with it and answer it as many times as you want. For example, "Old engineers never die, they just go out of spec." Or, "Old quality engineers never die, they just go out of tolerance." Or, "Old sofas never die, they just go to college." Once we get more normal/non-geek examples on the boards, I'm sure you'll get it. For example, finish this one: "Old writers never die, they just______"

    Too cool! I'd never heard it said as anything but a joke, and I had no idea this was a serious and deeply moving saying. I apologize to anyone whom I may have offended by posting this as a joke, and many thanks to Wayne Brown for the real story.

    I'm so glad I wasn't drinking anything at the time I read this one or I'd have snorted it out my nose. Good one, FatFreddysCat!

    I think my postman must be very old, then, although she doesn't look it, because our mail arrives anywhere from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.!! Thanks for another good one, miss_jkim!

    Poor lobster, but as you say: it's generally their lot in life. The fates can be so cruel.

    A. Villarasa--I cannot explain how horrified I am that I have ignorantly but deeply offended you. I most certainly meant no disrespect to anyone, living or dead, especially not to General MacArthur! I doubt anyone meant offense. I'll close this ASAP.
