An announcer from the Pittsburgh Pirates pre-game show last night (4/30/13)  said that while the
Pirates are doing well, “they aren’t clicking on all cylinders yet”.   This is a mash-up of “firing (or hitting) on all cylinders” (working at full strength) and  “clicking with (someone)” (understood by someone suddenly).   A malaphor salute to Mitchell Hoyson for sending this one in!
