“Honesty is the best policy, but insanity is the best defense”

‘Honesty is the best policy” is an old proverb. “Honesty is the best policy, but insanity is the best defense” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images.

“Honesty may be the best policy, but insanity is the best defense” was cited in print in February 1996 and “Honesty is the best policy, but insanity is the best defense”—without “may”—was cited in July 1996.
