Out of our price league


I heard this one years ago when a chain of stores called “Price Club” existed.  I imagine that may have prompted today’s malaphor, a mixture of “not in my price range” and “out of my league”.   Both indicate something unattainable.  Maybe the combination means it REALLY is unattainable?

  1. I like found malaphors, but I think we need a new category for ones that only work on the page. Hominypropaphors? For example, I saw this on FB:

    “I smacked the policeman because that’s the way I role!”
