A malapropism so good that I can’t not pass it along.
A colleague emailed me and a group of co-authors critiquing our draft paper. Each time he noted a minor error or slight miscalculation, he would preface his comments with apologetic phrases such as:
“I really don’t want to kibbutz, but…”
“I hate to kibbutz, but…”
“Far be it from me to kibbutz, but…”
I wrote back “Why is this such an issue for you, when you are a Roman Catholic living in Dallas?”.
