This curve ball has a silver lining

On the show “Royal Pains” (S8.E6 Home Sick), there is a discussion of being able to find good news coming out of bad.  A woman says to Hank, the main character, “This curve ball has a silver lining.”  This is a mash up of “every cloud has a silver lining” (it is possible for something good to come out of a bad situation) and “throw (someone) a curve” (to confuse someone by doing something unexpected or tricky).  A big thanks to Isaac Joel for hearing this one and sending it in!

Speaking of silver linings, you need to get the new book on Malaphors if you have not already done so.  It’s called He Smokes Like a Fish and other Malaphors and has a guaranteed laugh on every page!  Get it now on Amazon at  http://www.amazon.com/dp/0692652205 or at Create Space at
www.createspace.com/5793567.   It’s the creme de la resistance!
