"Take the Michael out of" nghĩa là gì?

"Take the Michael out of" -> nghĩa là trêu đùa, chế giễu, chế nhạo ai. 

Ví dụ
Comedy (hài kịch) allows you to take the michael out of anyone.

Lucas and Fielding were more of a match in their shared love of surrealist (siêu thực) humour, while the Little Britain comedian endeared himself to many with his willingness to take the Michael out of judge Paul Hollywood, and his impersonation (đóng vai) of Boris Johnson’s baffling coronavirus briefings (“If you must bake in a tent bake in a tent, but please don’t bake in a tent.”) Back with ‘ole blue eyes Hollywood on judging duties was Prue Leith and her colourful to the point of retina-searing spectacles.

A roguish Irishman sat alone on a bar stool (ghế đẩu) in an empty studio, smoking a cigarette, holding a drink and serving up hilarious helpings of sacred cowburger. He particularly liked to take the Michael out of the Catholic Church, but everything was fair game for Dave Allen, especially authority figures.

Recall when the press (bài áo), tried to talk to Portia at some opening, she told them to take the mike out of her face, because the Press is rude (thô lỗ), to be pushing mike in her face.

"Middle for diddle" nghĩa là gì?

"Middle for diddle" -> nghĩa là người ném phi tiêu gần hồng tâm nhất sẽ được chơi đầu tiên. 

Ví dụ
Those who want to participate because they just enjoy the game of darts and are up for a bit of fun will pay €3 to play. Both groups will pay out for 1st and 2nd places and there will also be the “Middle for Diddle” mini-competition which will see the winner scooping (thu về) a sizeable prize.

Middle for diddle as 'random' Ryanair free seating beats lottery odds (số lẻ) to stick you away from window and aisle (lối đi giữa dãy ghế). In a scientific study all 16 passengers who didn't pay to reserve a seat ended up in a middle seat at odds of around around 1:540,000,000.

It’s taken a while for David Cameron to work out how best to answer these shorties. He started by waffling (nói dông dài) like billy-o, tying himself up in knots. Then he tried a short reply and came a cropper there as well. So now he goes middle for diddle with a medium-length, pithy reply. Spending up. Doctors up. Bureaucrats down. Allegedly.

"Yellow-bellied chicken" nghĩa là gì?

"Yellow-bellied chicken" = con gà bụng vàng -> nghĩa là người rất hèn nhát.

Ví dụ
Then, on April 4, Stathakis stopped the meeting and ordered the TV cameras off when Golasa refused to stop attacking Flynn. “You can’t take the heat (chịu đựng), can you?” Turner bellowed (gầm, rống lên) from the audience. “Why don’t you put this on camera, you yellow-bellied chicken.”

In the most basic variation, two cars drive directly at one another; each driver has the option to continue driving straight or to swerve (chuyển hướng).  The best outcome for the driver is to bravely continue straight while his opponent swerves like a yellow-bellied chicken.

Romney is a boot (giày) lickin', yellow bellied, chicken *hit head, low life, scumbag (thằng khốn) RINO turd. Takes his shortcomings out on Trump because Obama mopped the floor with his sorry behind. Can't believe I voted for that dirt bag.

"Pretty please with sugar on top?" nghĩa là gì?

"Pretty please with sugar on top?" = "làm ơn" (có tẩm đường) -> cách nói thậm xưng của "làm ơn".

Ví dụ
Can we stop already with the Jaylen Brown trade rumors (rùm beng), please? Pretty please with sugar on top. Who wants to trade this guy? Not me. Not anyone I’ve ever had a conversation with. Not anyone with a partially developed brain. Not Danny Ainge I certainly hope.

Chuck again... Yes, the article is much longer than the snippet (mẩu tin), and once again I implore (cầu xin) you to read it, please, pretty please with sugar on top? And I thank long time reader Bob for sending me the link above yesterday...

With how the Cowboys came back from a 20-point deficit (tiền thiếu hụt) in the last two quarters against the Atlanta Falcons to win, you can only imagine the amount of backlash Smith got from Cowboys fans. “Do not put through this noise for two consecutive weeks,” Smith said. “Please! Pretty please with sugar on top!

The question now for Burgum, Mahoney and the rest of the pretty-please-with-sugar-on-top mayors is simple: What number of dead North Dakotans will be enough for you to impose (áp đặt) a mask mandate (bắt buộc) and strict limitations on gathering that will have the teeth of enforcement?

The unnamed crew of Pobeda airline are now under investigation (điều tra) for stunt (cuộc biểu diễn nguy hiểm, trò nguy hiểm) which was reportedly done to back the Russian team captain Artem Dzyuba.

Dzyuba was suspended from international duty after footage (cảnh quay) showing him masturbating (thủ dâm) in bed was leaked online in a possible blackmail (tống tiền) case being investigated by Russia's security services.

Centurio senex is a wrinkle-faced bat found in Mexico, Central America, and northern South America. Interestingly, this species shows a distinct sexual dimorphism (hiện tượng lưỡng hình): Adult males have a fold of skin under the chin that can be raised to cover the lower part of the face like a mask (mặt nạ, khẩu trang), suggesting that it might be used during courtship (tán tỉnh) behavior. But this species has rarely been studied, so little is known about its behavior and natural history. In the new study, the researchers report the first observations of echolocation and mating behavior of C. senex. The authors analyzed synchronized audio and video recordings from an aggregation of males located on 53 perches in Costa Rica over a period of six weeks.

This species appears to use lek courtship, in which females choose mates from clusters of sexually displaying presumably territorial males. Among mammals, lek courtship is known to be used by only 12 species, mainly seals and hoofed mammals. When females approached, the perched males beat their wings and emitted very loud, low-frequency whistling calls. The males lowered their masks immediately before copulation (sự giao cấu, giao hợp), then sang enthusiastically and raised their masks again after mating.

"Come to a climax" nghĩa là gì?

Cho hàng xóm biết thế nào là nhạc hay :)) Photo by Anne Nygård on Unsplash

"Come to a climax" có climax là điểm cao nhất -> cụm từ này nghĩa là đạt đến đỉnh điểm, cực độ. 

Ví dụ
It’s been a long year for county clerks (thư kí) in West Virginia with a presidential election year during a pandemic. All of the preparations come to a climax Tuesday with the General Election. Those clerks have already taken in more than 253,000 ballots from the 10-day early voting period and as of Monday, 136,000 mail-in absentee ballots from a process expanded because of the pandemic.

A Lower unemployment (thất nghiệp) rate is causing some Republicans to think that a smaller bill may be more appropriate. With Joe Biden making it his priority (ưu tiên) to deal with the virus, we can expect talks to come to a climax this time around. Stay healthy stay safe.

It remains unclear how The Immortal Hulk will end, but we know it will come to a climax at Issue 50. In the gulp before its final 10-issue gasp, though, its grisly (ghê tởm) obsession with consumption continues, now thanks to classic Hulk villain, The Leader (Samuel Sterns).

It had all come to a climax during the 2018-19 season when Honka had a prime chance to claim a starting spot under Montgomery’s coaching staff. Injuries hit the Stars’ defense hard in early November, which opened the door for Honka to prove his worth.
