IDIOMS FOR IDIOTS (1-4)

 

 

Daylight robbery – not an easy thing to steal.

 

Don’t cry over spilt milk – it makes it salty.

 

Don’t upset the applecart – if you can find one.

 

Draw the short straw - with a long pencil.

    A brush with the law - a sweeping statement?
    Too big for yer boots - they shrunk the chemist!
    Break a leg - i'm fed up with being your stand-in.
    People in glass houses will vegetate.
    All bark and no... OUCH!

    Good ones Michael.

    Your cartoon reminds me of a lady in the Care Home where Joyce was, that lady always walked round with three or four hats on her head.

      I've seen a similiar notice which read:
      This is a Private Notice - Readers will be Prosecuted.

      In my office we had a notice which was there for years - it read:
      Please Do Not Remove This Notice,

      I appreciate the inclusivity of your judgemental eyes: no hat types were left out!
      wonderfully quirky and full of that sarcastic wit - you toast your targets with: spread so generously thick, lol

              I'm the idiot - I don't even know what an apple cart is. Any ideas?

              Angela here ~ Good Tuesday Uncle MIKE ~ no Poem today BOTH too busy at Work ! Us Young ones have to earn a CRUST ! Love the idiotic IDIOMS my fave is No 3 ! I know what a APPLE CART is and how easily they are upset ! When I used to visit Sevilla in the Summer as a Child in addition to Vineyards Mis Abuelos grew Oranges & Lemons & Apples. The Apples were always ripe first and we used to pick them and put them (carefully) into big baskets ! The APPLE CART was Low & Flat & Horse Drawn. We used to sit on the Cart and hold on to our BASKET because the ground was bumpy ad we didnt want to *Upset the Apple Cart* and Bruise and Dirty the Apples which were bound for the Local Market to be sold on the Family Stall ! Its not much different today in Rural Spain ~ AMEN !
              Love the Cartoon ! In essence I wear about six Hats ~ Physio - Wife - Gardener - Singer - Youth Laeder etc & so does BRIAN ! However fortunately they are CYBER HATS except the Floppy One I wear for Gardening. We have two Apple Trees but no Wooden Apple Cart just a plastic Wheelbarrow - Wobbly with ONE WHEEL ! No Poem today *MY SENSE OF TOUCH* TOMORROW !

              Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
              Love Angela - Brian - Smokey ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐ŸคŽ
