cliché: knuckle sandwich

Meaning: a punch in the mouth (example)

Rewrite 1: fist brunch
Rewrite 2: bare knuckle salad
Rewrite 3: Bronx dental cleaning
Rewrite 4: five-finger lip enlargement
Rewrite 5: party punch served with a five-finger shot glass

Comment: The original was always so evocative and image provoking; I tried to keep these in a similar frame.

Thank you so much, Keli. I appreciate the feedback. Some of these are fun to write and the creativity flows. Others are harder than melting granite and difficult to rewrite.
