  • "Feed two birds with one scone" over "kill two birds with one stone"
  • "Be the test tube" over "be the guinea pig"
  • "Feed a fed horse," not "beat a dead horse"
  • "Bring home the bagels" rather than "bring home the bacon"
  • "Take the flower by the thorns" over "take the bull by the horns"

"Sounds like some blatant anti-plantism to me," says one Twitter user, per HuffPo. "'Feed two birds with one scone' has broken my brain i'm going to die laughing," says another. (PETA previously sought a roadside memorial for dead lobsters.)
