    Wouldn't their mouth be closed until they opened it to release the words at which point the words would already be out

    Do we really exist? Or do we just live in the Matrix?

    If the early bird gets the worm, doesn't the early worm get eaten?

    No, the worm was late getting to bed.

    Are there not any additional worms for the (relatively) late birds to 'get'? :confused: :cool:

    The early bird gets the worm, but the late mouse gets the cheese.

    To take the words out of someone's mouth, you must do it while kissing.

    Is this the bird in the hand, or half the birds in the bush? And if it's in the hand, has it eaten yet?

    See, I always thought birds were social though, you think they'd go out for dinner as a flock or something. What kind of jerk bird would start eating before his friends got there?

    A selfish one?

    What if there's only one worm. Does a whole flock have to share it, akin to the digesting, puking thing that birds do for their babiez?

    Exactly. So what we; the MacRumours proverb dissection crew have concluded is that if you're early for something, you're a selfish jerk that is starving their friends.

    Good work team!

    I prefer using a boning knife. It works great for all words, even the small hard to hear words said during mumbling.

    Of course not, someone just used inception to plant that idea in our minds.

    if you take the words out of someones mouth before they say them, are you violating intellectual property rights?

    They've all been said anyway.

    Funny you should say that..... the other day I was just babbling away, not really thinking, and I realized that it sounded familiar. So I googled what I said, and it was a Shakespeare play I'd never heard of before. What a coincidence, eh? This was the play with the bird and worm, but the worm dressed up as a fish and fell in love with another fish, but couldn't tell it because it was really the crown-prince of Denmark. Or something like that.
