We may turn a blind cheek to that.

Okay, this one conjures up different images…. This is a mash up of two phrases that describe ignoring something or someone –  “turn a blind eye” (to ignore something and pretend you did not see it) and “turn the other cheek” (to ignore abuse or an insult).   Or maybe the speaker just wanted to ignore someone who was acting like a butt – who knows?   Thanks to Yvonne Stam, a keen malaphor listener, for sending this one in.
