phrase jamming

A friend of mine has a fantastic talent for unwittingly mashing up well known phrases. Unbeknown to him I’ve been jotting them down over the last few months. Here are a few of my favourites.

Time period of indeterminate length:

…it’s like waiting for a piece of string…

Warning! Heinous violence towards fruit:

…this is our first stab at the cherry…

Double negative:

…it could be one of my mistyping errors…

Are you a dogsworth?

…I’m the office jobsbody…

The pastry is the key:

…as light as pie…

Do you believe in reincarnation?

…I suspect that one is gonna die a duck…

And finally, my personal favourite because of the image it conjours up:

…Well, we spent the first half of the meeting just finding each others feet…

If you can beat any of those, be sure to add them in the comments.
