>Modern proverbs – a man creeping sounds like an elephant in concrete boots

>

A man’s ability to tread silently is inversely impacted by any (or all …) of the following
a) alcohol
b) it being after midnight
c) curry
d) it being more than 30 minutes after you’ve fallen asleep
e) it being first thing in the morning and he’s leaving for an early flight and you don’t want to have the small people woken
Interestingly the man in question will have no perception of the fact that he sounds like a herd of wildebeest charging through the house but will insist that he was moving about a quietly as a mouse.
A mouse sat on top of an elephant wearing concrete boots possibly.

A proverb (from the Latin proverbium), also called a byword or nayword, is a simple and concrete saying popularly known and repeated which expresses a truth, based on common sense or the practical experience of humanity.
