Mixing your metaphors

One of my favourite mixed metaphors—which I had somehow internally misattributed to David Johnston—was this one, from University of Waterloo registrar Ken Lavigne:

Admissions is a crap shoot, and this year we won in spades

This week, Peter Lewis of Fortune may have topped it:

Apple is making applesauce out of the old canard that Macs are a lot more expensive than Windows computers.

What kind of applesauce do you get from a canard, anyway?

    Maybe they were going to make applesauce to go with the canard?
