Help: I need ideas on what words to engrave......

My BIL is getting his bachelor's degree this weekend. DW picked out a nice clock, and there's a place for engraving.

We can't think of anything witty to engrave. He's 40 years old, and all the traditional engraving ideas I have seen are for a 20- something year old.

Any ideas would be mucho appreciated!!

Got a clock, huh? How about "IT'S ABOUT TIME!" By the way, if you pick one of our ideas, will there be a prize?

I am not what I once was.

But I'll bet you're still a bunny with a pancake on his head.
