These are funny, Andrea.  My mother taught me #15, but her version was, "Just think about all the starving people in Armenia."  That may date both of us.  And # 25 - I here my words (which were my Mother's words) coming out of my children's mouths; DD2 says she HAS children just like her!  Thanks for the chuckles.
