Unneeded qualifications to popular proverbs

  1. A bird in hand is worth two in the bush. Unless it is ostriches you are looking for.
  2. A fool and his money will soon be parted. He will not even get good exchange rates.
  3. No man is an island. Especially Iranians.
  4. If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen. And close the door behind you.
  5. A man is known by the company he keeps. Unless he has a majority stake in it too.
  6. Every man has a price. And if you wait for the season to end, you might even get big discounts.
  7. A leopard cannot change its spots. Not even the underwear.
  8. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Unless they have a body odor issue.
