Even a blind squirrel finds a nut twice a dayPosted: March 13, 2016
This congruent conflation was uttered by a former colleague in a training session. He mixed the sayings “even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile” and “even a broken clock is right twice a day”, both meaning someone who is misguided can still be correct by luck or by chance. Both idioms start with “even a” which probably created the mash up. A big thanks to Tim Stueve for hearing this one and passing it on!
