It was so quiet you could hear a mouse drop

This is a mad mixture of “so quiet you could hear a pin drop” and “quiet as a mouse”, but the speaker must have had “mouse droppings” on his mind as well.  My guess is that when a mouse does crap it’s pretty quiet, but that’s only a guess.  Really.  Props to Marianne Julian for hearing this malaphor.
