If the hill is on fire the grasshoppers are roasted. Malagasy Proverb.

jan09 005

A Texan was riding a cab in Sydney.  He and the driver are soon crossing the Sydney Harbour bridge, and the passenger is unimpressed — “I have a duck pond bigger than that harbour, and an ornamental bridge to span it that makes this look like a toy.” The Sydney-Newcastle expressway also gets his scorn — “Is this a road, or a track?” So when a kangaroo jumped out in front of the cab, causing the sudden and severe application of the brakes, the driver couldn’t help himself — “Stupid grasshoppers!”
