Mangled metaphors


Heard on a sports podcast today:

That’s the golden slipper that Cinderella was looking for.

Um…. what?

First off, Cinderella had glass slippers, not gold. Secondly, Cinderella wasn’t looking for a slipper. In fact, she wasn’t looking for anything – it was the Prince looking for the person who fit the slipper.

Sports guys.
