WELCOME to WEDNESDAY AUGUST 31, 2022
I learned a new word today; malaphor. It’s an informal term for a mixture of two aphorisms,
idioms, or cliches (such as “We’ll burn that bridge when we come to it”).
I’ve been doing this for years and I just thought it was a mild form of dyslexia. I didn’t know
there was an entire branch of the language devoted to it.
Some of the funnier ones include:
“You hit the nail right on the nose.”
“She really stuck her neck out on a limb.”
“I can’t make these split-minute decisions.”
“I can read him like the back of my book.”
“He’s burning the midnight oil from both ends.”
“It’s time to swallow the bullet.”
One I’ve used over and over again is; “It’s not rocket surgery.” But my favorite – and one I think I invented – is;
“When I want your opinion I’ll squeeze your head.”
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY people, stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A worker in the reference department of the Library of Congress received a call asking
the meaning of the phrase “without recourse.” He consulted a legal dictionary and furnished
this definition, “Said of a signer of a document when he takes no responsibility for the face of the document.”
“Thank you,” said the voice at the other end of the wire. “I have an autographed photograph of Coolidge.
It’s signed, “Without recourse, Calvin Coolidge.” 😳

No matter how many blows life dealt him (financial problems, his wife leaving him), Frank Sr. tried to put a positive spin on things. This was one of his favourite sayings, which his son took to heart. Unfortunately his son had a slightly different interpretation of what it meant, as Frank Jr. became one of the biggest confidence men of all times, in this movie based on the real life exploits of Frank Abignale Jr.
