Here are some well-known expressions rewritten into "Cliff-ese". For those of you who don't know what that means, he was a very wordy person on the TV show "Cheers" and never used a small word where a larger one would work. Try to figure out the phrases in simpler terms.

1. Projecting short, loud, canine-like noises erroneously toward the top of an incorrect arboreal plant.

2. To subject a slender illumination device to rapid carbonization on its antipodal points.

3. To slay a brace of avian creatures with just a single petrous conglomeration.

4. Like sending dense shelly concretions through the air to fall in front of stout-bodied, artiodactyl creatures.
