Peace of quiet

The Facebook meme below ends with the words “peace of quiet”. At first blush this appears to be just a typo, but in fact is a nice mashup of “peace and quiet” (a period of calm) and “peace of mind” (a feeling of being safe or protected). A big thanks to Kathryn McCary for spotting this subtle malaphor.

    Reminds me of a sign I saw outside a rochester bar a while back –

    “Don’t cry over spilled milk. It could of been beer.”
