Walking and talking

Apart from Jake the Cat and Mac the Dog, we have a pet peeve.

It’s when people-especially-Singaporeans say, “you can talk the talk, but can you walk the talk?”

Can someone please tell people who say that that the correct/original/true saying is “you can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk“? WTF does one mean by “walk the talk”? The only time I “walk the talk” is when I drop my phone and step on it.

  1. The poor phone 😉 It's so easy to talk and preach, but it's far more difficult to practise what one preaches. That's why one has to walk the “talk.” Walking the walk is fine..but is a different concept altogether. It's still good exercise 🙂
