Get back to snuff

This malaphor was overheard in a conversation. It is a mash up of “get back to basics” (return to the fundamental aspects of something) and “up to snuff” (meeting the required standard). Both phrases involve achieving a certain baseline, creating this mixup. A tip of the hat to Vicky Clancy-Yolton for hearing this one and sending it in!
