HELP ! An English idiom about"opposite" Today I listened to ESLPod #7 Food & Cooking. There is an idiom "clot and clot" or "cold and clot"? which usually used when we don't mean the following word exactly or indicate the opposite thing is true. Here's an example- MY COLD AND CLOT FRIEND HAS LIED TO ME AGAIN. (it means the friend is not a true friend) I don't know the exactly words in the idiom could you help me ? the words appears on 9'30''

I have never heard of this idiom. Britons?

I'm American as well and I've never heard this expression. The only thing I can think of that has similar sounds that might fit is "hot-and-cold" (adjective) or "blow-hot-and-cold" (verb) but without hearing it myself, it's hard to say.

Nope, never heard it. It's certainly not British - or at least not from where I'm from.

Can it possibly be "so-called?" it's not an idiom though. "My so-called friend has lied to me again" makes perfect sense.

If this is about opposites it would be my friend is "hot and cold" sometimes when his in a bad mood. Means he could be fun or could be an asshole.
