True, embellished and fictional stories for your amusertainment

Fractured Cliché #7

In communicating the company dress code, one of my former managers wrote “no belly bearing”. It conjured an image in my mind of taking a wheel off of a car to check the bearings.  I’m pretty sure she meant no bare bellies but that’s not what she wrote. In honor of her fractured memo, I present the following Fractured Clichés.

Fractured Cliché: Bare in mind (like a presenter seeing their audience naked)

Correct Cliché: Bear in mind (like Yogi and Boo Boo)

Fractured Cliché: Bare with me (the presenter must be naked too)

Correct Cliché: Bear with me (grrrr)

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,
