Creative commentary plus crafty composition

This makes a dozen batches of enlivened clichés (with the original in italics):

  • Hop, skip, and a jump: Name the three phases of dancing through dog droppings
  • Your overcoat seems to be wearing out, so if the shoe fits, wear it
  • I’d rather not just depend on gravity, so I’ll jump in with both feet
  • I’ll bet dollars to donuts because it’s really hurtful to gamble away donuts
  • Bird friends swoop and down were looking out for nests and in one fell swoop
  • If you can hold the phone you should be able to lift a cord of wood
  • It’s a game of inches, so the decimal crowd feels left out of this one  
  • Put it all in the blender, except for the part which comes in two shakes of a lamb’s tail
  • A broken shell isn’t all it’s cracked up to be unless it’s in response to a joke
  • In the spacious far north, if you’re short on cash, just the tip of the iceberg will be good enough in any establishment
