Fractured Cliché #4

I learned something recently and want to see if you know it, too.  Think about cliché’s and fractured cliché’s and decide which of the following does not fit.

a)   Don’t open a can of worms

b)   Don’t have a cow

c)   Don’t open a cow

d)  None of the above

If you answered “d) None of the above” you are correct on two counts.

First, “None of the above” is not even a cliché so that alone causes it not to be a fit.

Second, COW is an acronym for Can Of Worms so even c) is a real cliché! However, even though it’s technically correct, when quoting the cliché I would stick with can of worms, otherwise it just sounds odd.

Looks like this week I got the whole ball of yarn right!

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,

Pam
