They’re willing to go to the ends of the moon for you guysPosted: January 10, 2017 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: expressions, go to the ends of the earth, humor, love you to the moon and back, malaphor, malaphors, words 1 Comment
This was overheard on a conference call. It is a nice mash up of “go to the ends of the earth” (pursue to the utmost limit) and I think “love you to the moon and back” (love you forever). “Promise the moon (to someone)” (to make extravagant promises) and “ask for the moon” (make outlandish request for something) might also be in the mix. Of course, the speaker might have said this literally, upping the ante on performing a task. Going to the ends of the earth is not enough. Kudos to Anthony Kovacs for hearing this one and sending it in to Malaphor Central.
You don’t need to go to the ends of the moon to get the book on malaphors. Just click to Amazon and type in the title, “He Smokes Like a Fish and other Malaphors“, and you can get this cheap but amusing book today!
Love this one.
