I’m starting out this part of my Flogitter* by sharing “itter bits” from one of my favorite collections, more specifically my collection of “fractured” clichés.
(*As a reminder, my Flogitter is a combination of Facebook, Blog and Twitter.)
I am notorious for misquoting clichés. I have done this so often, that I started collecting them. So far, I have more than 50. Not all are mine; I’ve included mistakes from other people, too. By my count though, I hold the record for the most contributions (although that could be due to sampling error).
During the “itter” weeks, I’m going to share these with you. When I run out, I will dip into my next collection – I can’t wait!
Fractured Cliché: Mother is the necessity of invention
Correct Cliché: Necessity is the mother of invention
(Isn’t this fun!)
May the farce be with you!
Next time I will be talking about the “real” reason birds fall from the sky in my Facebook series “About Face”.
