Hands off to the staff!

In a Facebook post, kudos were given to Middlesex Diner, where the breakfast was good despite being very crowded. The writer then said “hands off to the staff!” This is a congruent conflation of “hats off to (someone)” and “give (one) a big hand”, both meaning to express appreciation to someone for a job well done. Hats off to Dan Tulip for this excellent malaphor. And be sure to visit the Middlesex Diner when traveling through West Middlesex, PA!
