"..what's the saying, you can't polish a turd, no matter what??"

Well, if you leave it for 35 years, you can certainly do a lot of other
things with it.

For a start you can pick it up, then you could.....

Use it as a car hood ornament, feature on the mantlepiece, paperweight,
chalk substitute, hanging mobile, earing, necklace......

There is another saying regarding casting pearls before swine that comes to

But my favourite is:

"You can lead a cat that's changed it's spots to the barn door with a silver
lining but it's no use crying over the demise of Cream and Blind Faith"



"Even the mighty Czar is buried with the same shovel"

from A Hundred And One Russian Proverbs

(never did like the deluxe edition - A Hundred And Eleven Russian Proverbs
with bonus tracks)
