You’re really bumming her down

A dog was on the bed and the wife was making the dog get down off the bed. The husband blurted out this malaphor, a combo of “bummed out” (sad or discouraged) and “bring down” (to make someone sad or worsen the mood). Both refer to sadness and dejection, and bumming and bringing are similar in sound. A big thanks to John Kooser for not only sending this one in but also unintentionally saying it.
