Cliché: sweep it under the rug

(entered for 1-09-06)

Meaning: hide something for
nefarious reasons. Definitions and uses.
Rewrite 1:
sweeptv2 it under the sofa
Rewrite 2: drop it into a heating
Rewrite 3: take it
Rewrite 4: sweep it into a
black hole

Comment 1: The hard part of this rewrite is to keep the cliché’s sense of intrigue.

Comment 2: When I tried to find a link to a definition for "black hole" for rewrite 4, I went to the California Space Institute website, the link provided by The results page I received was "Object not found!" How ironic.
