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!
Poor lobster, but as you say: it's generally their lot in life. The fates can be so cruel.
This is a great one, bethperry! Thanks! (Which reminds my, my brake rotors need to be turned, because they're warped...)
My goodness, you really were on a roll! Thanks for submitting all of these, fpherj48! What fun answers! I think the "Old skiiers.." one is my favorite, though they're all good.
Hmmm... reminds me I should survey a few pairs of my shoes to see if they need attention.... Thanks, livelifeworryfree! Another good one.
Maybe I'm into postman jokes today, but that was my favorite! Thanks, Say Yes To Life, for brightening my day along with everyone else.
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!
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.
Who can possibly disagree with this one? Awright, robertpalmisano! Thanks for standing up for those too busy having fun to participate. Cheers!
Hey that was awesome!!
I agree - great talent here.
:-) Thanks for that!! I'm having one of those wish-I-could-"turtle-in" for safety types of days. I feel about a hundred, so at least (using your logic) I should look good and hopefully get my computer fixed today. :-)
