I hear both ends of the coinPosted: March 6, 2017 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: both sides of the same coin, both sides of the story, expressions, humor, language, malaphor, malaphors, words 1 Comment
This great malaphor was heard on Chicago’s public radio station, WBEZ. You can hear it here at around 5min 25sec: https://www.wbez.org/?utm_source=link&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=Web-Share&replayer_show_id=17b65e7d-75ab-46fd-8603-58a8a2ac1ae5. It is a mashup of “two sides of the same coin” (different but closely related features of one idea) and “hear both sides of the story” (listen impartially and to different views). Sides and ends are mixed up for this speaker. A tip of the toque to Peter Hopkins for hearing this one and sending it in!
Great one. Nice and simple.
