In "Biggles Fails to Return" one of the characters (Bertie) throws a lemon at a man who tried to kill him (by hitting him over the head with a frying pan and throwing him down some steps). I think it hit him in the eye. Turned out they were actually on the same side.

This is one of those twee aphorisms that is supposed to make you feel better, but doesn't, because it doesn't actually make a lot of sense.
It just takes one negative homonym of the word lemon and substitutes it for positive one. It's no more meaningful than "If life gives you cancer... write a horoscope".

Still, I like the options smiley:::smile

Interesting that nobody would paint them.

recognize the lemon and then metamorphosize it into something more postive.

Use one slice with your shot of tequila, make a lemon meringue pie with the peels and juice, and then plant the seeds.

My SO suggested it to me; I'm enjoying it a lot. It's very whimsical. The only other Pratchett I've read is only half-Pratchett, and that's Good Omens.

I'd do something else. I will make Lemon Pie

It's funny, I rarely even think about the fact that I could make surveys. I just don't think of things that I think would make good topics that often, and I don't really like dealing with Qual. I suppose I could make a survey and just leave it and see what happens, not checking on it in Qual.

LuridHope's comment is really funny.

Unless life gives you sugar and water as well, your lemonade is going to suck!
