“You can catch more flies with honey, but you can catch more honeys being fly”

"You can catch more flies with honey, but you can catch more honeys (by) being fly” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Honey catches more flies than vinegar” is an old proverb from at least the 1600s. “Honeys” is slang for “women,” and “fly” is slang for “cool.” The saying was probably thought by several people independently, without one specific coiner.

Some young men tend to go for the more overtly-confident approach to their quotes.’I get butterflies when I think of myself,’ read one inspired offering. ‘You can catch flies with honey but catch more honeys being fly,’ read another.
