"With egg on your face" nghĩa là gì?

'With egg on your face' mang ý nghĩa 'rất xấu hổ', hoặc làm/nói gì đó xong mà bạn cảm thấy mình ngốc nghếch, ngớ ngẩn.

Ví dụ
"Philip did a good job with her and we've had her about five months now. She's a nervous type (kiểu người lo lắng) so this should suit her well, but you can end up with egg on your face in these match races."

He said: "I am relieved (thở phào nhẹ nhõm) really, because when he ran on his final start last year he won a Group Three - so running in a handicap at Wolverhampton, there is a chance you could end up with egg on your face."

Now you can aspire (khao khát) to increased sensitivity (nhạy cảm), finesse (khéo léo) and honesty (trung thực), and still end up with egg on your face. It’s not a matter of intentions (ý định) but of end results. We’re only human, but sometimes we make fools of ourselves.
