Something really struck out.

This was spoken by Pitkin County (Colorado) Deputy District Attorney Andrea Bryan on the CBS program 48 Hours in reference to a piece of evidence in the murder investigation of Aspen, CO socialite Nancy Pfister.   It is a mash up of “stuck out” (noticable) and “struck me” ((come to mind suddenly).  Kudos to that Merry Malaphor Maniac, Mike Kovacs, who said that nobody “struck out” on the recording and reporting of this gem.
