It’s outside the pale

This subtle gem was uttered by Hillary Clinton on the Rachel Maddow show.  She was discussing Donald Trump’s position on abortion and said that “it’s outside the pale”.   This is a mash up of “beyond the pale” (unacceptable) and “outside the norm” (uncommon).   The perceptive Frank King heard this one and passed it on.  He has the ears of a hawk!

    Dave, I heard a choice comment today. A coworker said “I don’t want to open up that hill of worms”. This is the lovely blending of “opening up a can of worms” and “doesn’t amount to a hill of beans”.
