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."
