"A hungry belly has no ears" -> nghĩa là không biết gì khác ngoài cơn đói; 'bụng đói tai điếc'.

Ví dụ 
Meethi lassi was definitely not the healthiest choice to wash down our high-calorie meal at Chattha's but it was the need of the hour and as they say, "a hungry belly has no ears".

Citing the Vietnamese proverb "Có thực mới vực được đạo" (or "a hungry belly has no ears"), Minister Tiến said the ministry "attached great importance to increasing incomes for medical staff."

That was the year when we launched renewal. Internationally, we were isolated (cô lập). Domestically (trong nước), we were destroyed. The country was in bad shape. A hungry belly has no ears. So policies by the party were not listened to by the population.
