Original Starting post for this thread:
By popular request across the board, let's try this again. Share whatever malaprop or interesting word you have heard. The best ones are those you heard from someone else off site. If you must share one you've read here, please don't attribute it by name. 

Let's start by rebuilding the list of the better ones from my previous attempt at this. 

I'm not going to re-type the story behind this one, other than to say it supposedly was spoken by a judge chastising a persistent attorney: "Counsel, you're barking up a dead horse."

Someone else contributed something about "Finding a diamond in a haystack." 

Ready, set, geaux.

"Hindsight is 50-50..." Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

I think when he lays his cards on the table, it's not a full deck.

Yes, he dropped the ball and now it's in his court.

"We was executin' on all cylinders." Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

He's not the sharpest pencil in thinking outside the box...

"Dew process"

A method of making a nerdy chick's pussy all dewey by whispering obscure Constitutional principles to her while committing an invasion of her privates.   

Disclaimer: I wasn't clever enough to come up with this one. A nerdy chick, who shall not be named, had to explain it to me.

Fun,

I went to college with a guy named Nyms.

I wonder if they were related?

Working on a history project today with my son and most of the people in the apt are suffering from flu-like symptoms.

Seems everyone has a bad case of diorama.
