Two things caught my eyebrow this weekPosted: March 25, 2019 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: caught my eye, expressions, humor, malaphor, raised some eyebrows, words Leave a comment
This was spotted on a facebook post. Sounds painful. It’s a nice mashup of “caught (one’s) eye (attention)” (attract one’s attention) and “raised a few eyebrows” (to elicit shock or surprise through unconventional actions or words). Both idioms involve the eye, and both involve getting one’s attention. I’m surprised that, considering the times we live in, there were only two things… A big thanks to Yvonne Stam for noticing this one and sending it in.
