Too many clichés can be terrifying!

On January 23rd Doug Savage’s Savage Chickens had a cartoon that began with the three clichés and punchline I’ve shown above. Look at The Easy Life to see the terrifying hybrid image he came up with to illustrate that punchline. It might have been inspired by the Eat Me and Deathmobile float shown in the movie Animal House.

Does your speech have too many clichés?

Images of the carrot cake and sardines in a barrel came from Wikimedia Commons, and the apple pie is from the National Cancer Institute.
