Clever malapropism: Position is nine tenths of the law.

John Lamb was talking about growing stone fruit and where to put it in the garden:

"Position is nine tenths of the law"

No that's a clever play on words. A deliberate malapropism.

An not as droll as the earlier one where they were talking about "lintels, not lentils" where John mentioned that "surely the announcer is not a 'has been' (bean)" arf. Yes, I got it.
