Houses Homework Meme

The simple wisdom of a child can bring a tear to your eye or a smile to your lips.

And one young student by the name of Bela has proved just that when he was given an assignment to finish off a list of well-known proverbs.

Bela's unique take on the sayings has gone viral since his hilarious answer sheet was shared on Reddit.

One young student by the name of Bela was given an assignment to finish off well known sayings and proverbs, above

The industrious young boy, whose age and location is unknown, turned the proverb - probably the most famous thanks to it's part in The Shining - on it's head.

'All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,' a saying which appeared first in 1659, becomes 'All work and no play makes Jack happy', according to Bela.

'Don't bite the hand that feeds you' is a well-known saying that reminds us to be good to our benefactors.

However, Bela clearly still had the first proverb ringing in his ear when she wrote: 'Don't bite the hand Jack'.

'When the cat's away you will pay', Bela writes ominously, in place of the more traditional expression: 'When the cat's away the mice will play.'

Perhaps Bela was rather sensibly anticipating the high cost of vets or cattery bills.

Bela's unique take on the sayings brings new meaning to many of them and his homework paper has been shared on Reddit (file photo)

The dangers of being hypocritical are illustrated by the saying: 'People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones'.

However, Bela has a different interpretation.

He simply wrote: 'People in glass houses are rich.'

Fowl are know to be staunchly private creatures. Bela warns 'Don't count your chickens because they need privacy,' meaning, presumably, if you storm into the coop ready to take a quick head count without warning you're likely to ruffle a few feathers.

Another bird proverb devised by Bela says: 'Don't put all your eggs in there'.

A more general and up-to-date take on the classic 'Don't put all your eggs in one basket', it most likely takes into account the rapid decline in the use of wicker armwear to transfer and store eggs.

But Bela's final proverb is arguably the best and probably deserves a place in everyday speech.

He wrote: 'It's all fun and games until Darth Vader comes,' inspired by the Star Wars franchise.
