Creative commentary plus crafty composition

Spring in fact, if not in deed, starts tomorrow – so here’s more warmth from enlivened clichés (with the original in italics):

  • The grant for Dr. Frankenstein’s experiments was reduced, so all he could do was make heads or tails
  • The fact there was no accounting for taste in estimating corporate goodwill really upset the chocolatier
  • Money doesn’t grow on trees, however, many seemingly good schemes are truncated in the bud
  • To ensure equilibrium, since we already have an unneeded good, we’ll also require a necessary evil
  • Make no bones about it if you want to build the patio with a skeleton-less look  
  • The tricky mime is making money hand over fist by pretending he’s hiding something in his clenched fingers
  • If you don’t like night and day, you’re going to be hibernating for a long time
  • In olden days, if the cannoneers kept missing the boat they were put back on rifle duty
  • By switching medical plans to a new lease on life, the monthly premium is more reasonable
  • The grant for Dr. Frankenstein’s experiments has just been increased, so now he can afford to make nerves of steel
