Let’s get to the chase

This nice, subtle malaphor was spoken by Patricia “Tan Mom” Krentcil during her guest appearance on The Howard Stern show, talking about her love for Stern Show staff member Sal Governale.  It is a congruent conflation of  “cut to the chase” and “get to the point”, both meaning to abandon the preliminaries and focus on what is important.  A big shout out to Mike “the Malaphor Slayer” Kovacs for hearing this one and passing it on.
