    I Don't think this fits, but here goes:
    How come we drive on Parkways, but park on Driveways?

    Here's one that might be better:
    An expensive luxury sedan was in an accident, and ended up wrapped around a concrete barrier. When the police arrived, they said, "That's the way the Mercedes Benz."

    Some people have written books full of such one-liners (or their one-liners have been compiled into books). Ambrose Bierce (Devil's Dictionary), Samuel Longhorne Clemens, Voltair, Goethe, Douglas Adams and others.
    Douglas Adams is my favourite philosopher of the later 20th century.

    "Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western spiral arm of the galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this, at a distance of roughly ninety million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet, whose ape descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea. This planet has, or had, a problem, which was this. Most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small, green pieces of paper, which is odd, because on the whole, it wasn't the small, green pieces of paper which were unhappy. And so the problem remained, and lots of the people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches."

    Some of my favourites that i have collected, mostly from growing up in east Lancashire which is a hotbed of poignant sayings, plus one or few I've picked up over the years.

    Always remember you’re unique, just like everyone else.

    Cocoa beans grow on trees so chocolate is fruit.

    Chocolate doesn’t ask any questions. Chocolate simply understands.

    Dogs have masters. Cats have staff.

    Experience is great. It allows you to recognize mistakes when you make them again.

    I am pleased that Noah took those two coffee beans on board.

    If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a million times: Don’t exaggerate!

    Many people get upset when a sentence doesn’t end as they bean sprouts.

    Sometimes I wake up grumpy; other times I let him sleep.

    If you see nothing you can be grateful for, check your pulse.

    A woman must do twice as well as a man to be thought half as good. Luckily this is not hard.

    Life is addictive and it always kills you.

    She is no better than she should be.


    And some french ones

    Les bras m'en tombent - meaning so stunned my arms are failing

    Être comme une poule qui a trouvé un couteau - like a chicken that has found a knife.

    My all time favourite french saying
    Il y une couille dans le potage - there is a testicle in your soup

    Being paranoid is no guarantee that they are not after you.

    It isn't wrong to admit when you are wrong.
