"He is the very pineapple of politeness" -Mrs. Malaprop (from the play The Rivals - 1775)
You've heard them, you've laughed about them and now you need to share them.
I'm talking about those funny, twisted, mangled up things that people say when they're really trying to say something else. That's right - malapropisms.
The last two times we did this cracked me up. But now it's time to refuel the fire. What did your co-worker say the other day? What phrase does your mom always get wrong? What crazy thing did our President say now?
Oh wait, there's too many of those for one blog post. Sorry.
Anyway, I'll start...
The other day one of my co-workers was talking about how stupid Elliot Spitzer is when she claimed, "Yeah, well he's not the sharpest bulb in the drawer."
Then recently I heard a woman after church exclaim that she felt the homily was "a little strong winded." Hmmm, she may want to think about sitting in front of the deacon next time.
And last issue, Diesel shared that his parents have a friend who used to "gouge himself" at banquets. I commented that I bet that got pretty messy.
So let's hear yours. Otherwise if I don't get enough to share for next time, I may have to continue to resort to the "go to" guy...
