Angry Language Guy - Do Not Try This at Home

Yesterday, on my way home, I heard this metaphor on the radio in a discussion of Iranian politics.  This metaphor is not just tortured; we have waterboarded it 187 times, stuck bamboo shoots under its nails, and have forced it to watch Adam Sandler's oeuvre with each movie cut short by ten minutes so there's no chance of plot resolution.

"Sacred red lines have been crossed, which will be difficult to put back in the bottle."

The bastard offspring of William Spooner and Mrs. Malaprop is alive and well and living in your radio.
