Okay, enjoy doing this so much previously that I had to make another version of this. Of course, being part two, we get 100 more amazing cliches. And before I begin, I want to let you know that these aren't on Lee just for emails. Heck, you can use these in everyday life. You can use them on social media, which for a lot of people, is everyday life. You can use them on block pose to use it for content, for videos. You can use them wherever you like. Be as creative as you like. It's gonna help you stick out like a sore thumb. Okay, now that we've already started with a cliche, let's move on to the actual 1st 1 Okay, So what I'm gonna do is obviously read it and basically give you many definition of what it is. All right. So abandoned ship is to look a board. Okay. If something's going wrong, it's kind of like if the ship's going down, everyone's got to abandon. Evacuate, Reject. All right. Stop what you're doing that type of thing. Number two all bent out of shape. Someone's getting all crazy, all like worried or, you know, like, if someone says, Oh, my God, a storm's coming We need to get shelter. We need to get food, like, chill out. You're getting all bent out of shape right there, worrying too much to settle down. Right? Number three, all spare in love and war. This means that basically, whatever happens when it comes to love and war, all bets are off, All right? People do a lot of crazy things just the way it is for another nail in the coffin. Kind of like someone's. Really? I guess you could use this in a trial. Where? Up. They've just found the knife. And guess what? They found his fingerprints on it. That's another nail in the coffin. Just another way of saying okay. Five as good as gold. Which means it's very good. It's, um it's something you want. Okay. Six. Back against the wall. Kind of. You have no options left. You're kind of screwed. You put yourself in a bad spot. Okay. Seven bags all packed and ready to go. Okay. This is basically someone. Ah, there's made up their mind and they're ready to do something.

I just threw the ball over to you. What you going to dio? You gonna shoot? Are you gonna throw it off my head? Go with shoot, please. Nine baptism by fire. Probably one of these single best ways of learning anything. It's ah, it means throwing you into the situation as awkward as stressful. As frustrating as confusing. It's gonna be You just got to do it. Okay, I love doing this, cause So Maney so few people want to do it this way. They wanted to be all it. It's got to be no problems. This is the best way of learning anything. Alright, Study this definition and then use it. Okay. 10. Been there. Done that. Got the T shirt. Old news. Already heard it. Already seen it.

Forced are fine dining hotels. Yet they go for McDonald's because that's the budget number 13. Chomping at the bit they can't wait. Super excited. I'm about launches. Great course. People are chomping at the bit to get it. That's what it is. 14. The clock is ticking. Basically, the time is running out.

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. My goodness, if I could ever use this one enough, I can't tell you how often I see someone say something and it reminds me of this. Basically, someone get something for free and all they got to do is crap all over it. Why? It's horrible. Why it sucks. And they're saying this after they got it for free. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. 18. Don't take any wooden nickels. Just another way of saying kind of like be careful. $19 Dishwater. Probably making fun of someone can 20 dumber than homemade dirt once again making fun of someone. They're an idiot. 21 year old dog food. I love this one. Basically, this is like if a business creates a product or a solution or course like this and they actually use it. Okay, So, for example, I eat my own dog food because I used these liberations these cliches, these idioms all the time. OK, 22. Elevator's stuck between floors are there's something wrong with that person or a little idiotic. They're a little crazy. It's when it is 23. Enough money to burn a wet dog. No animals were harmed in the creation of this idiom or cliche. I promise you. But anyway, they have a lot of money. 24. Every dog hasn't stay. Kind of like everyone has their day.

Everything okay from a dizzy They don't miss anything out, are you? Get the idea. 30 from the horse's mouth, right straight from the original source itself. Not through some rumor, not through some gossip. You're hearing it from the guru himself, right? 31. Give it the old college try. You know, Give it a try. Just do it. Test it out. Just like in college. I believe this came from because when you're in college, you're young. You kind of do anything. You go crazy. And in college, I know a lot of women will do almost anything once and obviously a lot of dudes as well. But either way, it's kind of weird stems from give it the old college Try 32 going to hell in a handbasket . You're going to hell. You're going to hell and you're going to hell. He did something bad. That's when they say that. 33 glimmer of hope. Okay, you can kind of see a light at the end of the tunnel, and that's great jams. Go ahead and, uh, define a cliche by using another cliche.

They had to close out. They went belly up. 35 Gopalan san, which means get the hell out of here. Go fly a kite. I don't want you beat around me.

Have a stick up. Your Hess said There's something wrong with this person. Maybe there being aggressive. Maybe they have an attitude. Maybe they're not respecting you. That's the city.

This means something is really hot. Temperature wise, I could be. Touch it. You're gonna burn your hand off 41. I need your help. Like a kangaroo needs a purse. Basically, I don't need your help at all. Not at all. So just go pound sand, right? 42. I wouldn't piss on your teeth if they were on fire. This is a great way of saying you despise someone like your teeth are on fire. Heck, I wouldn't even piss on you. I don't like you. That's 42. 43 in the dog house. Means you're in trouble. Okay? The husband has to sleep on the couch. He's in the doghouse. 44. It has to get worse before it gets better. Hey, so if you're going through a crappy time, guess what? That's something you say.

All right, you're moving too quickly or starting ahead of everyone else. This kind of stems from when people used to race that they'd sound the gun, they'd shoot it. That's when you start. So if someone basically started earlier, they were jumping the gun. 48. Jump down your throat. Someone is pissed. Someone's probably verbally assassinating you.
