2020 Malaphor of the Year – Number 2Posted: December 31, 2020
It’s no sweat off my nose (submitted October 2020)
This is one that I think anyone might be guilty of saying as it is a near perfect mashup. A small business owner decided to stop selling biscotti because a new coffee shop down the street started selling them. It was not a big deal to her, and she uttered this great malaphor. It is a congruent conflation of “no skin off my nose/back” and “no sweat”, both meaning not a problem or concern. A big thanks to Vicki Ameel Kovacs for uttering this beauty and Mike Kovacs for sending it in. The picture below was suggested by Mike.
