It’s only Monday, but it’s going to be really hard to beat this entry for worst mixed metaphor of the week*:
“It’s an Easter egg hunt, looking for eggs out there. And when you come up with something like this, it’s Christmas.”
This is from an interview with the guy who thinks he’s found a document with the original recipe for Coca Cola (readable or watchable at just about any news outlet in the known universe).
This quote demonstrates a special kind of accidental genius, in the way one holiday suddenly becomes another. It could only have been better if the eggs were found in a stocking, or under a tree.
Check back later in the week for a more serious post!
[*Just to be clear: there is no actual weekly “worst mixed metaphor contest.” But at times like this I think it might be a good idea to hold one!]
