The Malapropism

The Malapropism is a mixmash of words in common phrases, much like ordering the super-salad special. For all intensive purposes this is not meant to be pejorative and you may insist that I seize and desist. But I refuse, because I report to a hire being as I’m suppose to do. To be pacific, this treatise is a scrapegoat for those who are aggressive in this doggie-dog world and I intend to nip it in the butt. They just sit there taking it all for granite, but I am responding now rather than biting my time to extract revenge. When you feel my wrath, you will curl up in a feeble position, choking on your own fear. Not even a last stitch effort of the Heimlich remover will save you. Great thinkers now agree that this view produces the very pineapple of thinking. And no longer will you get off Scotch-free.
