"Stick out like a sore thumb" nghĩa là gì?

'Stick out like a sore thumb' = chồi ra như ngón tay cái bị sưng -> nghĩa là quá nổi bật, khác biệt so với những người/môi trường xung quanh (be obviously different from the surrounding people or things).

Ví dụ
Game of Thrones star James Cosmo sticks out like a sore thumb among the Z-listers in the new Celebrity Big Brother.

Wehner preferred the black Mi MIX because the color made the bezels disappear, while the white model "sticks out like a sore thumb."

Watford Community Housing Trust’s proposal to build 133 new homes and a new shopping parade was voted through despite the fact it will “stick out like a sore thumb”.

We've all got a number of different resolutions as the new year rolls in, yet one that seems to stick out like a sore thumb for everyone is losing weight. It doesn't matter if you've got the body of a model or just want to shed a few pounds – becoming skinnier or slimmer is something most of us long for.
