Is there a name for this sort of thing?
Making a three word phrase out of two two word phrases that share the same last and first word.
Other examples off the top of my head:
game over rated
butterfly kisses ass
data dump truck
Could be longer phrases:
time flies in the ointment
shooting star ship enterprise
red state of confusion
Phrases like this come to me all the time, and I know I can’t be the only one. Is there a name for them?
Many thanks and love the show.
Wheel of Fortune calls it “Before and After”.
