He knows where all the skeletons are buried in the closet

This was heard on the MSNBC show, Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell. A guest on the show at the 41 minute mark said, “…Allen Weisselberg knows where all of the financial skeletons are buried in the closet.”


This is a mashup of “knows where (all) the bodies are buried” (to know a large amount of secret or scandalous information) and “skeletons in the closet” (shameful or embarrassing secrets). Both involve secrets and refer to the dead. A big thanks to Frank King for spotting this one!
