My anxiety is out of the roof

This was overheard in a disability hearing.  It is a nice mashup of “through the roof” (to rise to a very high level) and “out of this world” (extraordinary).  The word “roof” seems to be the cause of a lot of idiom jumbles.  Check out other “roof malaphors” in the search engine.  One I vividly recall is “the shit hit the roof”.  A big thanks to Sam Edelmann for sharing this one.

If you liked this one, you’ll love my book on malaphors, “He Smokes Like a Fish and other Malaphors”, available on Amazon.  It’s out of the roof!
