He was telling my ears off

I heard this one at lunch yesterday from a former colleague, Cindy.   We looked at each other and said, “malaphor”!   It is a mash up of “talking my ears off” (excessive talking) and “telling me off” (scold someone).  Telling also sounds like yelling, which I think also was going on.
