I just want to get under your feathers

This was a comment from a Facebook “friend”.  It’s a nice congruent conflation of “getting under your skin” and “ruffling your feathers”, both meaning to irritate or annoy someone.  This seems to happen a lot on Facebook, even among “friends”.  Props to Vicki Ameel-Kovacs, the reigning Malaphor Queen, who saw this one and passed it on.
