Re: More Friday Fun: Archie Bunker-style mangled expressions
(For those of you not familiar with the 1970s TV show All in the Family,
Archie Bunker was known for mangling common expressions.)
On the radio yesterday, I heard someone talk about "siding on the error
of caution." I'm still laughing about that. Nothing like reversing words
as well as getting one of them wrong-and saying it on the radio to boot!
I know this isn't a "mangling," per se, but if I have to see one more
advertisement or TV news ticker misspelling "peek" as "peak" (i.e.
"Catch a sneak peak of 'X-Men 3'!"), I'm going to have an Archie
Bunker moment myself. "HEY, MEATHEAD!"
