"a guy born on third, thought he hit a triple"- that is classic.   If you don't mind I am going to "borrow" that.

Feel free. IIRC, I stole it from a guy named Mike Reisel with whom I worked, and I don't know whether he made it up or stole it from someone else.

As a (Pulitzer-winning) photojournalism professor of mine used to say when you complimented him on an idea, "Oh that? I stole that from the guy who stole it from the other guy..."
