A small one

I was watching home movies and Brendan said a mixed metaphor that is out of this world, although this is a fully intentional one:

Fate is a cruel snake, with bitter herbs and spices.

So I was just thinking:

Hell hath no fury like freezing over.

It's been a while, but I want to check in with a few new ones!

I woke up on the wrong side of the tracks.
The grass is always greener on the wrong side of the tracks.

The early bird opens up a can of worms.

Curiosity killed two birds with one stone.

Don't reinvent the squeaky wheel.
Reinvent the wheel and the world will beat a path to your door.

Twin Metaphors

So this is the third one from watching Twin Peaks. It's pretty amazing.

Donna: "Get the picture?"
Mattie: "Loud and clear."

Good old fashioned Lynching.

I was just watching Twin Peaks, and heard two amusing mixed metaphors.

1. Discussing Laura Palmer's addiction to cocaine, Audrey said she had "a sweet tooth for nose candy."
2. Pete Martel says he's "So tired" "you could eat a horse." finished Josie Packard.

Which got me thinking:
I'm so tired, I could look a gift horse in the mouth.

No sweat (I wish)

I was sitting here in the sweating stinky heat and I said to Rich:

Stick a fork in me, I'm ripe.

Automatic Thumb Twiddler 2000

Lying in bed and I can't sleep. I came up with a mixed metaphor though:

Idle hands are the mother of invention.

Wash your hands, its time for supper...

Came up with this doosey today:

Don't shit on the hand that feeds you.

Livin' la vida lleno.

Hey all. It's been a while, I've been traveling a lot, haven't had a chance to update the list. I'm sure I'll do more when I'm in Israel, but here's a quickie from my friend Shari - she heard it on the bus:

You've gotta live life to the fullest to the brim.
