Rebus brain teasers use words or letters in interesting orientations to represent common phrases.
What does this rebus mean?
HintIt's an anagram of an 8-letter word.
A mixed metaphor attempts to create an extended comparison but fails because it is not consistent with itself.
Remember, even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed!

|AHA! I get it now. "Mixed Metaphor" is achieved here because he took the word "METAPHOR" and "Mixed" or scrambled, the words into an Anagram. I'm not slow. You are just too fast! This was a BRILLIANT EXECUTION. A Rebus with an Anagram....and a new vocabulary word (Mixed Metaphor). I can't beat that. GO GIZZER!!!!!|

|Why is it that difficult equates to not fun so often? I enjoy the more challenging ones. This wasn't all that difficult (though I didn't get it before looking at the answer).|
