I wouldn’t do that in a pink fit of Sundays

This was uttered by the submitter’s mum on many occasions.  It is a mashup of “in a pink fit” (a tantrum or in anger) and “in a month of Sundays (under no circumstances).  The mix up seems to be caused by that pesky preposition “in”.

I researched the phrase “in a pink fit” as I had never heard of it and it seems to be an Australian idiom.  Any UK folks out there heard of it?   A big thanks to Abigail for sending this one in.
