Probably Not What He Meant

I forgot to post last week on probably the best mixed metaphor I've ever heard. Actually, I suppose it isn't a mixed metaphor but a compound metaphor. Whatever you want to call it, it came from a Chiefs player being interviewed by 610 AM's Rhonda Moss at training camp.

"You know we just want to get something under our belts that we can hang our hats on."
Unfortunately, if you think too hard about the quote you eventually get around to thinking about how heavy a football helmet is. Ouch.
