This manager worked in a grocery store. It is a hard job that requires him to arrive at the store at 5:00AM, do various tasks to make the store ready, handle deliveries, staff management and unexpected issues.
He had this habit of always sarcastically saying "Just another day in paradise" often saying it to others but most often muttering it to himself. He did this every day, multiple times a day.
One day while he opened the store in the morning he got shot dead by robbers.
With do you call it when he "butchers" the saying intentionally.
What do you describe someone who intentionally uses a saying out of context for their own purpose?
Not necessary only negative but rather describes the act of "butchering/abusing" the saying for your own purpose.
Another example for clarity:
Every time John drinks a glass of water he says "I just touched the hand of God"
I thought of hypocrite but that doesn't fit what I'm trying to say.
