He really sold him under the bus

Have I found the new “master”?  Actress Cristin Milioti said the following to People magazine:

“The other day I was chatting with my boyfriend,” she told Theater Mania, “and I said to him, ‘He really sold him under the bus.’ And he said, ‘I think you meant “threw him under the bus,” or “sold him up the river.” ‘ … It’s a constant problem. On my first date, my boyfriend asked me if I wanted to eat a la carte, and I said that I would prefer to stay inside! It’s really embarrassing.”


Cristin, do NOT be embarrassed by this wonderful gift you have received.  On the contrary, continue to utter your wonderful malaphors so I can share them with the world.  “To err is human; to malaphor, divine.”
