EVIDENCE THAT SOME FICTIONAL CHARACTERS SHOULD HAVE MADE DIFFERENT NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS



I didn't write this.  This post (except for the cartoons) was written by Fran Hill & published December 31st in her blog "Being Fran".  I thought it was really clever & that you would enjoy it.  Is everyone named Fran funny?




Gulliver: Don't lie down in other people's countries.

Red Riding Hood: When taking cakes to grandparents, go via the main road.

Pilgrim: Steer clear of Sloughs.

Dr. Frankenstein: Use a wider variety of materials for future craft projects.

Dr. Jekyll: Learn to live with yourselvesself.

The Three Little Pigs: Begin with the bricks.

Holden Caulfield: Revise.

Jay Gatsby: Never let a woman drive.

Lennie Small: Let go of the soft things earlier.

Mr. Bennet: Don't bother with sarcasm that no one gets.

Dorian Gray: Keep the portraits in the kitchen.

Juliet: Marry for money.

Three Men in a Boat: Leave dogs at home.

Magwitch: Skype from Australia

Jane Eyre: Ask for a full tour of the house on the first day.

Piggy: Always carry matches.

Macbeth: Never trust women who don't speak in iambic pentameter.

The Emperor: Check in a mirror before leaving for processions.

Mama Bear: Give them toast.

  3. I have definitely learned that when a woman starts laughing during an argument that it is time to stop talking and concede.

  6. I love the one about the best medicine not on your health plan! And your friend Fran provided some good advice for all those characters. Too bad she's a little late. Again, thanks for making me smile.

    1. That one's really hard to keep. Or, as my dad used to say, quitting smoking is easy; he'd done it a hundred times!!

  8. OH NO to the lack of laughing gas, and exposing your feet. That dentist is going to lose a hand.

    I like Juliet's revised resolution the best.
