If you don't have a sense of humor, it just ain't funny

Malapropism Monday

In honor of the holiday week (though I am in fact working the next four days after having today off), I declare another lj game. We're doing funny misused clichés/malapropisms. For example:

"Not the sharpest hammer in the sack."


That, of course, being a conflation of "Not the sharpest tool in the box" and "Dumber than a sack of hammers".

Post your candidate sayings here in the comment thread. In a couple of days I'll put them into a poll, and we'll have open voting. Winner gets a copy of Rocket ScienceClarkesworld Books | Amazon ]. If the winner already has a copy, their choice of one of my other books, written or edited. As usual, voting ties to be settled by the Child.

And if you're not a registed lj user, identify yourself somehow in the comments!
