Somewhere, there has to be a first instance of someone notable saying "... an enigma wrapped in a conundrum wrapped in a warm flour tortilla and smothered with guacamole..." but apparently that's the irst place a certain type of mind goes with this. Anyone know the original source? Might have been a review of Casteneda's Don Juan books.

How about this:
You're complicated. You're like a puzzle, wrapped in a mystery, sealed with obscurity, and shipped through the WTF postal service. That's just the package you come in.
Is it just me, or does the last part qualify as being a Mixed Metaphor of some kind?

Page example at issue:
  • Used in NCIS to describe Abby.

Anyone want to elaborate how?
