  1. lol, I’ve seen this list somewhere else before, but I’m glad you reposted it. I think I’ll print it out and put it on the bulletin board behind my monitor… :-p

  2. well if you know where it comes from I will be glad to post a link to the source.

  3. Mixed metaphors can do a little more than sing: in Dutch they sometimes might be a compensation for a language limited in words. So, I do use mixed metaphors and moreover: lately I translate English expressions litteraly to express what I feel or think. Very much against the rules, but I like it.
    “Erg veel tegen de regels, maar ik vind het leuk”
    or
    “dat maakt u denken” (It makes you think).
    Since I’m not in school anymore, there’s no punishment to that;-). However, I haven’t tried it in professional writing and I wouldn’t advice it.

  4. Very clever, even if you didn’t write it.
