National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
This classic malaphor is spoken by Clark (Chevy Chase) in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. His son corrects him, pointing out that it is a mash up of “eat my dust” and “burn rubber”. Thanks to John Costello for contributing this famous movie malaphor to the collection.
