Let’s float a carrot

This was heard on a conference call in reference to a price proposal that would be presented to a customer.  It is a mash up of  “float an offer or idea” (present something informally to see if people are interested) and “dangle a carrot” (encourage someone with an incentive).  By the way, carrots do float (I think).   This beauty was heard by my chief roving malaphor reporter Mike Kovacs.  Of course I thank him profusely.
