When preparing ourselves for a difficult challenge I offered the opinion to my team, “We’ve got to grab the bull by the horns and wade through this thing.”
Mercifully no one called me on the mixed metaphor, but I’ve never forgiven myself.
I’m seeking your help to compile the definative list of mangled metaphors, which I will transcribe by hand onto toilet paper as penance.
“Surf the web”
“Cold as hell”
“Having to eat the elephant is a hard pill to swallow.”
