Don’t put all your ducks in a basket

This one was heard on the HGTV show “Househunters”. The husband said to his wife, “Don’t put all your ducks in a basket.” This is an eggselent conflation of “get your ducks in a row” (get well-organized) and “don’t put all your eggs in one basket” (don’t risk everything on one venture).  Idioms containing the words eggs, ducks, or baskets seem to get commonly scrambled.  Type any one of these words in the search and you will find many postings on the subjects.

A big thanks to Fandango, that malaphor wise quacker, for hearing this one and sending it in!
