Better Than Two in the Bush

We invited our readers to invent an idiom or proverb, and promised to emblazon it across a piece of merchandise that might ensure the phrase’s everlasting fame. The winning entry, “If a bird can’t fly, it walks,” was sent to us (and later illustrated) by the exceptionally talented Kevin Cornell, and is available now on a sticker suitable for display on the tail of your crapped-out Corolla, on the wall of your cube at your hopeless job, or above your workbench at home, where the real work is done.
