Who else has thrown out the phrase- “close but no cigar,” or “keep your friends close, and your enemies closer,” only to have this potentially-clever rejoiner fall upon uncomprehending modern-day ears?

Luckily, we have Doghouse Diaries to bring these phrases into the 21st century and help you really drive that witticism home. Some of my favorites? “Never judge an app by its icon,” “Google wasn’t built in a day,” and “hell hath no fury like a troll.” One that falls short- “a file on your device is worth two in the cloud.”

Hat tip to Mashable, without whom I never would have found this gem.
