In Reply to: Synonym phrases for "stupid move" please posted by Wervil on April 04, 2002
: I am looking for phrases that say, in a more colorful way maybe, "that would be a stupid thing to do". Anyone got some? Thanks.
That makes as much sense as a solid gold life preserver . . . a cheesecloth raincoat . . . planting tomatoes in October . . . a ski resort in the Sahara . . . sunbathing during a total eclipse . . . realphabetizing your dictionary . . . bungee jumping in a coal mine . . . speaking in sign language over the phone . . . writing your will in disappearing ink . . . shampooing with epoxy . . . cloning cockroaches . . . telling a prospective employer your last job was head wrangler at an ant farm . . . applying for a job as head wrangler at an ant farm . . . visiting a radioactive-waste disposal site and asking for a doggie bag . . .
That ought to get you started.
