Creative commentary plus crafty composition

Enjoy the warming glow of more enlivened clichés (with the original in italics):

  • They lost both soccer balls in the pond, so the teams had to agree to kick the bucket
  • It’s not likely the crate just fell off the turnip truck , since no one’s loading that sucker until it’s cleaned up
  • By keeping your fingers crossed you can hide the digits which embarrass you
  • The city staff are fastidious; if you have a cigarette butt you have to knock it out of the park before they catch you
  • The cheapest substitute for the operation on your septum is to simply keep your nose to the grindstone
  • I know you’re having knee problems, but you should at least be able to jump the gun
  • The land of milk and honey does not appeal to unlucky travelers with dairy allergies
  • The knots may be a little confusing, but if you know the ropes you won’t be stuck for long
  • Before applying margarine for the taste test make sure you know which side your bread is buttered on
  • We’re nearly finished digging these trenches, so a last ditch effort and we’ll be done
