The chips are starting to crumblePosted: May 15, 2020 | Author: davemalaphor | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: Eric Trump, expressions, Huffington Post, humor, language, let the chips fall as they may, malaphor, that's the way the cookie crumbles, words |Leave a comment
This beauty was tweeted by Eric Trump a few days ago. Here is the link to the tweet and malaphor responses:
It is a mashup of “when the chips are down” (when a situation has become difficult) and “that’s the way the cookie crumbles” (accepting the way things happen even if it’s not what you wanted). “let the chips fall as they may” (let a situation unfloed without worrying about the consequences) is probably also in the mix. It’s possible Eric was staring at the end of a bag of potato chips when he tweeted this, where all that’s left is the crumbles. Of course the best method to dispose of them is to tilt the bag to your mouth as the picture suggests (tip of the day!). Either that or Eric’s digits must have been greasy when typing that tweet. A big thanks to Dave Wells and Lou Pugliese who sent this one it at the same time.
