I think most people know what a twofer is. For those who don’t: a twofer is when you bargain for one thing and get two. Two for one. Twofer.
ANYWAY, today’s one-liner is a twofer.
My family watched entirely too much television which, back in those early days, was pretty much televised vaudeville. So we were all big on one-liners, and we were all big on “toppers”: topping one one-liner with another.
Oh–here’s a bonus one-liner to set it up:
There’s many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip.
–old English proverb
So, let any crumb of food or drop of drink fail to make it to its intended destination, and somebody would say:
How could you miss getting it into something that size?
And somebody else would certainly top it with:
It’s hard to hit a moving target.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Do you have family jokes? If you write, do your main characters? If they don’t, give them some.
