A plague on words
Some amusing mangled expressions I’ve either heard recently, or imagined someone, somewhere must be committing:
- If I weren’t short on funds, I’d of bought a new car by now.
- The garage is so small that, for all intensive purposes, it’s of little use.
- It’s getting late; I’d just assume go home.
- We’ve come into unchartered territory.
- The looming deadline is a real spur under my saddle.
- He won by a hare’s breath.
