The company’s stock price is through the moon

In the conclusion to a report today regarding the Tesla Motor Car Corp. CNN news host Erin Burnett described the company’s stock price for the year as being “…through the moon…”  This wonderful malaphor is a mash up of the phrases “through the roof” (prices very high) and “over the moon” (extremely pleased).   Jackie Gleason’s famous line, “to the moon, Alice!” might also have been on Ms. Burnett’s mind.  Many thanks to David Spain for sending this one in and attaching the video with concluding malaphor below:
