Even my daughter knew it didn't make sense.

At work the other day, apropos of what I do not recall, someone said "We'll never be able to stop the hamster wheel by throwing band-aids at holes in the dike." I think it's actually four mixed metaphors because of the word "throwing". When I recounted this to my wife, my daughter pointed out that she knew it was silly because one "doesn't throw band-aids".
