Variety is the spice of life. Language is one of the spices in this life, the Universe, and everything. Here are some curious examples:
  • One can either have peace of mind or give someone a piece of their mind (that'd be tricky especially with no prior surgical experience).
  • The glass is half full or half empty is irrelevant to certain mothers, "Just drink it! There are starving kids in Africa!"
  • "Never say never" is a common phrase that's already contradicted itself twice.
  • If someone wants to "throw his weight around" does he have to "get his pound of flesh" first?

Though no specific spicy language is used above, variety is present. Thus, by association the spice of life is as well. Ah yes, language peppered with some sort of analysis. Yum! Yum!
