Stick a fork in the wheels of justicePosted: January 16, 2023
Daniel Goldman (D – NY) was on the Lawrence O’Donnell show (MSNBC) and was talking about the new GOP-led House Judiciary Committee. He started to say “stick a cog” but then uttered fork. This is a triple mashup of “stick a fork in it” (cease whatever is happening or being said), “wheels of justice turn slowly” (justice is slow but will come eventually), and “cog in the wheel” (someone who is functionally necessary but of small significance).
A tip of the hat to Mike Kovacs for hearing this one and sending it in!
