Tears were rolling down my eyes

This mix up is a combo of “tears were rolling down my cheeks” (excessive laughter) and “my eyes were filled with tears” (very sad).  This is yet another body part mashup, a very common theme in malaphors.  The mind is visualizing the face, and reaches for the wrong body part.  A big thanks to Martin Pietrucha for blurting this one and sending it in!
