The world is going to shit in a handcartPosted: September 3, 2017
This colorful malaphor was uttered by someone referring to the Trump presidency. It is a nice congruent conflation of “gone to shit” and “going to hell in a handbasket (or handcart)” both meaning a person or system is in a bad state and getting worse. This malaphor is very similar to a previous one posted, “the project is going to pot in a handbasket” (9/15/02). https://malaphors.com/2012/09/15/the-project-is-going-to-pot-in-a-handbasket/ A big thanks to Kerry Reynolds for hearing this one and passing it on.
