I plead “hyperbole,” your honor.
Then I sentence you to be taken from this place, and thence to a place of execution where you shall be hanged by the neck until you are dead. That, son, is hyperbole. Sure, it’s a dangerous weakness in a judge, I’ll grant; buuut perhaps it’ll provide your stupid ass with some perspective. Next hangin’ case!

I shudder to think of the sentence for a mixed metaphor.
