If anything can go wrong, it will (classic ifferisms) --
If it bends, it's funny; if it breaks, it isn't (wit & wordplay) --
If it is to be, it is up to me (words to live by) --
If men could learn from history, what lessons it might teach us (the human condition) --
If you can't be kind, at least be vague (not-so-iffy advice) --

If his IQ slips any lower, we'll have to water him twice a day (critical and insulting ifferisms) --
