The Proverbial First Grader
Tyler Cowen links to a list of proverbs completed by first graders:
"Better to be safe than punch a fifth-grader."
"Don't bite the hand that looks dirty."
"A penny saved is not much."
"Don't put off till tomorrow what you put on to go to bed."
"You can lead a horse to water, but how?"
Tyler points out that "All, I might add, appear to show a familiarity with economic reasoning, with the possible exception of number four, which to my mind makes no sense whatsoever."
