Sayings are little capsules of wisdom. They’re often studied for their historical, geographic, social, and cultural significance. That’s because they capture, in a few words the popular social discourse of the time. Furthermore, in many cases they’re instructive. Today we partially move away from the latter by presenting you with some of the best funny and entertaining sayings.

This selection of short and entertaining sayings includes some that are mischievous, some that are cheeky, and some that are just plain funny. Our intention is that you finish reading the list having had a good few laughs along the way. Are you ready?

The best funny and entertaining sayings

Some of the sayings in this list involve a twist on the original, more serious version. However, they’re all done in the spirit of fun. Write them down on your mobile if you want to memorize them or share them with your friends:

1. “Don’t drink and drive, you might spill it”.

At least it’s one more reason not to drink and drive, don’t you agree?

In fact, legend has it that the more you watch, the slower the download will be.

An easy way to fulfill them, without a doubt.
