    Ce ne sono tanti, alcuni simili all'inglese o ad altre lingue, altri differenti. Per es.:

    Io sono la pecora nera della famiglia (I am the black sheep of the family)

    I politici onesti sono come le mosche bianche (Honest politicians are rare birds - "white flies" in Italian)

    Sono al verde (I'm broke, "I am at the green")

    Acqua in bocca! (do not say a word! "water in mouth", you can't speak with your moth full of water)

    Sono stato bidonato! (I have been cheated; bidone=trash can)

    Hai fatto fiasco! (You fell flat, flopped, You have failed!, fiasco=flask,failure)

    In bocca al lupo! (in mouth of the wolf! = break a leg!)
