Game idea: take a famous quote and mutilate it! You can also just share your favorite quote or completely make one up!
(This was not my original idea and I don't know if a thread like this already exists but please have fun either way!)

Agreed! But in doing online research for these I've discovered plenty that are HILARIOUS but totally UNPRINTABLE!!

Try being married to a gemini, I tell her regularly that I have no need to cheat, it's like having multiple wives as is lol...step daughter is a gemini too, just because I didn't want to play life on easy...

So when I was living abroad, I volunteered with a girl from the Netherlands whose english was nearly perfect (to the point you forgot that she wasn't a native speaker at times). Anyway, one day, someone invited her to do something and when they asked why she declined, she said, "It's just not my peice of cake." HAHAH

Cup of tea....piece of cake....lol

Yeah, some proverbs (?, google translation) can be very confusing between different languages. For example in English we say "Apple of the eye" but in Polish "Eye in the head":D Once time here on PF I wanted to write "on the other side" instead of "on the other hand" but hopefully I wasn't sure and checked it:D
Probably I'd also say "piece of cake" because my English isn't better lol
