Weekend Fun 48: On Being Old and Crazy

Early this week, I posted this in my facebook wall:

"You can never be old and wise if you were never young and crazy. "-- Zeno Martinez
Tama nga naman. But why aspire to be old and wise when you can be old and crazy?

Lots of likes and funny comments from friends, including friend from UP, Zerno Martinez himself. Zero has a good sense of humor, posting one liners in his wall. Below are some of those from his wall, and my additions.

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried. -- Zeno
If at first you don't succeed, try and try until you will die. -- Nonoy

If at first you don't succeed...skydiving is not for you. -- Zeno
.. skydiving is not for you. You can aspire to be a manananggal de aswang. -- Nonoy

Someone once said: "It's not cheating if it works and no one catches you."
Congress and Senate version: "It's not stealing if..." -- Zeno
Congress and Senate version: "It's not stealing if it works and even if one catches you." -- Nonoy

Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason. -- Zeno
Sometimes the road less traveled is because the chicken is crossing that road. -- Nonoy

Honesty is the best policy but insanity is the best defense. -- Zeno
You may b e right, I maybe crazy, but it's just maybe a lunatic you're looking for. -- Billy Joel
Insanity is the best defense, lunacy is the best offense, and Honesty is a song by Billy Joel. -- Nonoy

You can't make a person love can only stalk them and hope for the best. -- Zeno
You can stalk a person and hope that he/she loves it. -- Nonoy

Zeno quote.
Nonoy quote: The unreasonable is the mother of all invention and reason. 

STOP blaming yourself. It's hard to do but with a little practice, you'll get there. -- Zeno
Stop blaming yourself. Delegate. It allows you to blame somebody else. – Nonoy

My advice to "be old and crazy" was a joke and yet many friends agree with it. Are they serious? I myself do not wish to be "old and crazy". Rather, I wish to be "young and crazy" forever. The fact that I think that I can be forever young already makes me crazy. hehehe.

Meanwhile, an intermission from another friend's fb wall posting...
