Overzealous Editing

I do a lot of editing. One important editing skill is knowing when to leave the original just as it is.

I was wondering what might have happened if overzealous editors had worked on some of pop culture’s great catchphrases.

See if you can guess the originals:

1] To what are you referring, Willis?

2] We must struggle to retain the right to celebrate.

3] Yippee-ki-yay, frustrating opponent!

Let me know if you get them!
