Cliche? TOUCHE!

You never know WHAT you'll find in Sher’s Brazen Hussy blog, darlings.... news, views.. perchance, snappy repartee. But you can be sure it will NEVER be clichéd.

Well, except today... because today's Brazen Hussy blog is about – ta da -- CLICHÉS!

After all, sometimes you can't avoid them (I’ve even gone out with a few in human form)..

ANYHOO, hitch your wagon to a star as I wish a top of the morning to you and hope you aren't cold as ice as you cry uncle --just remember not to judge a book, or blog ( how DO you get this template thingie to work better) by its cover.


Ready for clinches of clichés of the cinematic kind?.... Say WHAAAT??? Say, you may recognize these stick-a-fork-in-them-they-are-waaaaay-too-overdone scenes.

Por ejemplo, have you ever noticed that when the bad guy captures the good guy, he stops for, oh, five minutes of stupid dialogue to tell the hero all his plans to murder or blow something up or, heck, just rule the planet?

Also, women can moan during sex but ever see one sweat during the act on the silver screen? Me, either.  

And what about these cloy ploys people make in the language of cliché-ese.

You know, like when you dump Mr. or Ms. Wrong and you hear: "There are plenty more fish in the sea."

Yeah... and the point IS????!! What if you aren't into fish? What if the problemo in the first place was that the person's behavior was way tooooo fishy?

And, of course, there's always "All's fair in love and war."

What does that MEAN???

Oh, boy, can I use a bazooka to get even? Run over him with a tank, perchance?

And I NEVAH understood: "It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."

I prefer: "It is better to have loved and lost and come up with a TRES good plot for a thinly disguised novel that will make me loads of mula AND embarrass the you-know-what out of that famous narcissist creep than never to have loved at all."

N'est-ce pas?

Of course, clichés can be used to advantage. They are so annoying you can use them to, well, ANNOY someone..

Fresh out of clichés?. Is your back is up against the wall, time is flying, and you don't EVEN want to go there ??? Well, move OVER , darling! (OH NO.... I AM STUCK IN CLICHÉ HELL!!! .... whew! I just sloshed some ice cold champagne on my face and I’m  beginning to feel much better...)

What  I MEANT to say was -- go out there and do something so BRAZEN and un-clichéd people sigh, "That hussy is a walking inspiration of joie de vivre jolting originality!"
