Mixing it up across the pond

Hey. So I've been in Scotland so I haven't been posting. However I did just see a mixed metaphor in the library where I am writing this post. There was a flyer that said:
Unlocking your hidden heritage
Which I explained to my friend is a mixed metaphor since it mixes a metaphor of a locked door with a hidden treasure. He didn't believe me, but he's wrong. That's ok, I still love him.

So I'll be back in the states next week but to hold you over until then here is one coming from the Clinton campaign.

Pesident Clinton worked the western part of the state while his wife was in the eastern half at the front end of a six-week sprint until Pennsylvania's primary.

"Hillary, Chelsea and I expect to cover Pennsylvania like a wet blanket between now and April 22," he said. -source

Ah, just one more thing

I was watching Columbo, and he said "It's right on the tip of my tongue, and I can't put my finger on it."

Sorry its been a while since I updated this. I'll have to make it up to you somehow.

Hey, I've realized that I've been pretty consistently adding puns into my posts. I hope you don't mind. All puns are intended.


Out of the frying pan and into the kettle black.

Pushing it

Ok, so its late and I need to mix a metaphor, so here's something. I never promised they'd be gold, just daily.

The straw can break a camel's back, but it can't make it drink.

Taking 'Charge' - GET IT!?!?

I saw a documentary. The host said "Like matadors, they stepped into the arena and took the bull by the horns."

For the birds

There's a lot you can do with with bird clichés.

Birds of a feather catch the worm.
You can't squeeze blood from a bird in the hand.
Light as a feather flocks together.

I'm sure you can think of some as well! Put them in the comments.
I still haven't drawn any pictures. Sorry!

Meatloaf said it better

Read my lips and take the words out of my mouth.

(Oops, I didn't do a mixed metaphor yesterday!)

Well then, is it rocket surgery?

Today my co-worker Johny (who is great) said "It's not brain science."

That one rolled off me like a fish out of water off a duck's back. (that's from Kevin)

More giving

From my friend Gio:
I'll give you a piece of my peace of mind.

You should give him a frying pan too

Give a man a fish when he has bigger fish to fry.
