“Karma is a bitch”

2016-09-29T04:56:00-05:00

"Karma is a bitch” probably relates to the sayings “life is a bitch” and “payback is a bitch.” The “karma” in the saying is a combination of “life” and “payback.” “Karma’s a bitch, it really is” was cited in the Philadelphia (PA) Daily News on September 17, 1992. The saying became popular by the late 1990s. 17 September 1992, Philadelphia (PA) Daily News, “Sweet revenge: Annette DeBella tells of split with John” by Stu Bykofsky, pg. 39, col. 2: “Karma’s a bitch, it really is,” said Annette, “and I truly believe in karma.” OCLC WorldCat record Karma’s a bitch : a novel Author: J Gail Publisher: Brookhaven, PA : Truth Hurts Publications, 2007, ©2006.

Charles Doyle, Wolfgang Mieder & Fred Shapiro, The [Yale] Dictionary of Modern Proverbs (2012) gives a first occurrence date for “Karma is a bitch” of 1995, suggesting that this saying is very young: Karma is a bitch. 1995 Hollywood Reporter 7 Aug.: “Hello? Hello? HELLO? Nobody answers ... Did somebody say Tommy on line 2? Karma is a bitch” (ellipsis dots and capitalization as shown). ... Cf. “PAYBACK is a bitch” and “LIFE is a bitch.” In the Dictionary of Modern Proverbs, “Payback is a bitch” has a first cited occurrence from 1970, and “Life is a bitch” has a first cited occurrence from 1940 (and subsequent variations “Life is a bitch and then you die” [1982] and “Life is a bitch and then you marry one” [1987]). It’s unclear whether “Payback is a bitch” is an outgrowth of “Life is a bitch,” but I think it’s likely, given the similarity in their focus on retribution, that “Karma is a bitch” is a mutation of “Payback is a bitch.” answered Jul 25 ‘15 at 21:10 Sven Yargs Google Books Karma Is A Bitch: ( And So Am I ) Candace Mumford A.N.C.

“Congress is the only whorehouse that loses money”

2016-09-29T03:47:00-05:00

It’s an old saying that if government ran something (such as a casino or the racetrack), it would lose money. American economist John Rutledge said on Fox News on May 27, 2006: “Congress is the only whore house in America that loses money on a daily basis.” “Congress is the only whorehouse in America that loses money” was repeated by Rutledge on other occasions and has also been used by others. Wikipedia: John Rutledge (economist) John Rutledge (born August 16, 1948) was one of the principal architects of the Ronald Reagan economic plan in 1980-81 and was an advisor to the George W. Bush White House on tax policy in the United States. Rutledge is the Chairman of Rutledge Capital, a private equity investment firm that has invested more than $150 million in middle market manufacturing, distribution, and service companies. He is a member of the Advisory Boards of venture capital firms, hedge funds, and real estate investment firms. Rutledge is a visiting professor at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chief Advisor for Finance and Investment to the Governor of the Haidian District in Beijing.

“Why is Peter Pan such a bad boxer?"/"He never lands.”

2016-09-28T23:13:00-05:00

A popular children’s joke is: Q: Why is Peter Pan always flying? A: Because he never lands. “Why is Peter Pan always flying? Because he can Neverland!” was posted on a Disney-themed bulletin board on June 27, 2006. “Time for a stupid Disney joke. Do you know why Peter Pan always flys? Because he never lands!” was posted on Twitter on June 17, 2009. “How come Peter Pan has so many frequent flyer miles? Cause he Never Lands” was posted on Twitter on August 15, 2009. Sometimes this is made into a joke about a bad boxer (Peter Pan or someone else like him) who throws a punch that “never lands.” “Turns out Peter Pan isn’t a very good boxer. His punches would Neverland” was posted on Twitter on April 9, 2012. “@sabaduduLord decipher dis one:wen peter pan punches,he neverlands!” was posted on Twitter on April 18, 2012. “I love this joke because it never gets old” is an additional piece of humor that is often added at the end. The joke has been printed on many GIFs. Wikipedia: Peter Pan Peter Pan is a character created by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie. A free spirited and mischievous young boy who can fly and never grows up, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood having adventures on the mystical island of Neverland as the leader of the Lost Boys, interacting with fairies, pirates, mermaids, Native American Indians, and occasionally ordinary children from the world outside Neverland. In addition to two distinct works by Barrie, the character has been featured in a variety of media and merchandise, both adapting and expanding on Barrie’s works. These include a 1953 animated film, a 2003 dramatic/live-action film, a TV series and many other works. DISboards.com Your best Disney Jokes!
