#ModernProverbs is trending on Twitter as Irish users take to the site to joke about how things have changed since our most famous proverbs came into existence.

Started by satirical website 'The Poke', the trend has taken off worldwide as users make quips like "he who laughs last has the slowest broadband" and "teach a man to fish, he'll eat for a day... give a man a rod and he'll sell it on eBay".
