According to Andrea Magers :

On the lighter side, until this list, I never stopped to "think" about
this expression. I love malapropisms and homophones. They make life even
more interesting. "It ain't ova [over] till it's ova" as Yogi Berra would
say. Of course, "You can observe a lot by watching."

Now a "swift kick in the chops" sounds pretty tasty. Is that a method to
tenderize pork chops? :)

Keep 'em coming.
