I will haunt you to the ends of the earth

This beauty is from the Dr. Phil Show. He was interviewing Nicholas Brendon, one of the stars of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series, who had walked off the set when Dr. Phil started asking him about his drinking and Brendon took issue with the line of questioning.  In discussing the episode with Entertainment Tonight, Dr. Phil said that he was the wrong person to bring in if one really didn’t want to quit drinking because, “I will haunt you to the ends of the earth.” This is a mashup of “haunt your dreams” and “hunt you to the ends of the earth.”  “Haunt” and “hunt” are similar looking and sounding words, contributing to the confusion.  The malaphor contributor?  Mike Kovacs of course. Just call him “Mike the Malaphor Slayer”.  Thanks MMS.
