This nice malaphor was written by Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson on his Facebook page, relating his affection for his son. It is a mash up of “above and beyond” and “over the top”, both meaning extreme or more than is required. Idioms with direction words are commonly mixed. Many thanks to Judy McLendon Knaub for spotting this one and passing it on!
Love this one? Then you will go over and beyond for He Smokes Like a Fish and other Malaphors, my new book now available on Amazon for a mere bag of shells – 6.99. You can find it at http://www.amazon.com/dp/0692652205.
