"Mop and mow" nghĩa là (mặt) nhăn nhó, làm cho buồn cười.

Ví dụ
Don't mop and mow like that, Gibbie.

While one straightens the fork so precisely on the tablecloth, a thousand faces mop and mow.

Ineluctably (chắc chắn) that vast army is shaping, moving upon the future, in silence, in humility, nameless and without nationality, while you, who should be their leaders, mop and mow your antique grimaces (cau có), and dance your ritualistic capers (nhảy cỡn) at the end of the rope from which hangs Judas. This, I think, ends my apology.

Before you can say 'come' and 'go,'
And breathe twice and cry 'so, so,'
Each one, tripping on his toe,
Will be here with mop and mow.
Do you love me, master? no? ("The Tempest" của Shakespeare)
