I recently read a thread on the misuse and overuse of certain words and turns of phrase. While I believe everyone has their "pet violation" that rubs them the wrong way, sometimes these can be a lot of fun. Once, while stuck on a job site, my friend Alex and I started mixing and misusing common components of popular metaphors on purpose for entertainment. For example, "I was sweating like a church mouse in a china shop", or "The watched pot calling the kettle black". We entertained ourselves for days with this so I thought I would share this here. I'm looking forward to seeing more. Literally.
