Burying the cliche: “Dig your own grave”

We love the phrase, “dig your own grave.”

Unfortunately, it’s just another tired cliche by now, so we’d like to update it for 2011. What are some other ways you can tell someone they’re only creating trouble for themselves?

Here are a few we thought of:

“Fill your own urn.”

“Step on your own landmine.”

“Punch in your own launch codes.”

“Build your own jet-propelled car.”

“Stamp FAIL on your own forehead.”

“Buy your own ticket to Ciudad Juarez.”

“Troll your own blog.”

Any others you can think of?

  1. Rock your own boat.

    Poking your own bear.

    Tattooing your own tramp stamp.

    Sitting on your own rocket.
