Shoes and pie — two things I never thought should be used together. Better the kitten heel than the penny loafer.
The squeaky wheel, or in this case the spoon rest, gets the grease.
Why invest in Baccarat crystal when a faux-baggie will do?
These pots are for when the toilet paper absolutely, positively shouldn't be viewed with the naked eye.
