What is a mixaphor?  No, it isn’t an adult beverage…

It is mixing a metaphor which is a figure of speech that leaps from one identification to a second one and is inconsistent from the first one.  Sound confusing?  Well, it can be and that is the goal with a Mixaphor to create confusion instead of a fusion of effects.

Here is my example of a mixaphor:


I encourage you to mix up your metaphors today!  If anything it will give you a chuckle or two!

Some days it’s fun to be a horse of a different color dancing to his own drummer…

Cheers!  🙂
