All I Need to Know in Life I Learned on the Daily Dose of EOC

Read the following sayings:

Live and learn.

Stay the course.

Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Save it for a rainy day.

What goes around, comes around.

These sayings are examples of:

a. irony
b. pun
c. hyperbole
d. cliche

Scroll down for the answer.

The correct answer is d.  A cliche is a phrase that is used way too often.  A good writer avoids them like the plague.  Ha! Get it?

Anyway, it probably will not be on the EOC, but it has appeared before, so you should be aware of what the word means.
