    Modern Day Modifiers

    Much of the adages, sayings etc have been inheritated from days of old. The present day demands slight changes, therefore a modifying sentence is called for.
    //There can be more than one apt modifier, hence adages can be repeated. Modifier can post the adage requiring modification//
    Eg.

    Honesty is the best policy.
    - If it concerns your neighbour.

    Behind every successful man is a woman.
    - And a wife with three kids.

    Well?

    Too many cooks spoils the broth.

    But your caterer can never have too many.
    A penny saved is a penny earned
    And a dime lost in downtime.
