This congruent conflation mixes “I had a sneaking suspicion” and “I had a hunch”, both meaning to have a feeling or premonition.  This beauty was found by Laszlo Veres on a You Tube video of an old Dick Clark Bandstand show.  Dick was interviewing the Chordettes (Lollipop) and you can hear the malaphor at 3:21 of the video:

    Love your Malaphors, Tina
