Cliché: to pull the wool over your eyes

Meaning: to pull something on, or hide something from, you
Rewrite 1: to pull your hat down over your eyes
Rewrite 2: to tint your glasses with
whiteout
Rewrite 3: to mask the problem with duct tape
Rewrite 4: pulled the blinds shut and left with the chords

Comment: Most of these can be said with sarcasm, and all of them are audacious; have some fun with these, but also think of some that are more serious.
