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.
