Did the latest Parks & Rec have “nip it in the butt” instead of “nip it in the bud”? It sounded like “Hold onto your butts, ‘cause they’re gonna get nipped,” not “hold onto your buds,” right?
I definitely felt they were trying to pass off the fact that “buds” and “butts” sound alike as a joke.
Plus, “hold onto your butts” is somewhat of a saying, but “hold onto your buds” definitely isn’t.1 month ago • 3 notes
My entire life I didn’t realize that the expression was “making ends meet”
I always thought it was “making ends meat” and assumed that ends meat was some sort of hodgepodge meal like a meat stew with whatever you could find around the house thrown in and sometimes you were so poor that you didn’t even have enough to make “ends meat” this notoriously cheap meal!
but nope! That expression has nothing to do with food at all!
and “ends meat” is a meal that exists only in my mind!
I found this out literally 30 seconds ago!
EXTREMELY POWERFUL EGGCORN DETECTED
I love this eggcorn! With actual expressions like “eating humble pie,” “making ends meat” is a totally reasonable expectation of a saying.
