Witty Phrases for $1000

Bishop: "I'm afraid you've got a bad egg, Mr Jones";
Curate: "Oh, no, my Lord, I assure you that parts of it are excellent!"


Keira introduced me to my new favorite phrase "a curate's egg". I totally think our family can pull it off. At least to each other. I dare you to use it in a sentence tomorrow.

Oh boy. That's going to be a tough one. I'll try my best.

Steve liked the phrase, after I spent a couple of minutes explaining what a curate was. That's why it probably won't work for people that aren't readers of British novels.

It's on like Donkey Kong.
