I’m going to pull his buttonPosted: December 29, 2014 | |
Push or pull? It’s a choice we make everyday. In this case, the speaker made the wrong choice but a great malaphor. It is a mash up of “pushing his button” (to do the exact thing to make someone act the way you want) and “pulling his leg” (to fool or trick someone). A big thanks to Jack de Golia for sending this one in!
