“If the broom fits, fly it”

"If the broom fits, fly it”—a Halloween saying referring to witches flying brooms—has been printed on many images. It’s a variation on the saying, “if the shoe fits, wear it.”

“IF THE BROOM FITS, FLY IT!” was printed in a classified ad in the Wausau (WI) Daily Herald on October 8, 2002. “If the broom fits, fly it” was printed on the newsgroup thehalloweenparty on November 1, 2006. “If the broom fits...fly it!” was posted on the newsgroup americas-graffitti on October 29, 2007. “Halloween Decorations! [Wall lettering & graphics] - my favorite is - ‘If the Broom Fits FLY IT’” was posted on Twitter by Jannifer on September 23, 2009.

If the shoe fits, wear it
If something belongs or pertains to you, accept it. This proverb first appeared as “if the cap fits,” which may have referred to a fool’s cap. The later version has become more common and is associated with the glass slipper in the fairy tale, “Cinderella.”
