A safety blanket

A couple was discussing the recent cryptocurrency scams and how people lost large sums of money. One said, “how foolish do you have to be to not have a safety blanket in those situations?” This is a nice congruent conflation of “safety net” and “security blanket”, both referring to something that makes you feel safer and dispels anxiety.

A tip of the hat to Adam Jacob for unintentionally saying this one, recognizing it as a malaphor, and sending it in!
