ANIMAL IDIOMS

 

 

  1. Is there anybody in particular who does the donkey work at home / at work?
  2. Have you ever felt like a fish out of water? In which circumstances could you possibly feel like that?
  3. On which occasion have you had to take the bull by the horns and decided to do something?
  4. Do you know anyone who usually makes a pig of himself / herself?
  5. Do you know anyone whose bark is worse than their bite?
  6. Can you remember an occasion when someone you know had to walk away with his / her tail between their legs?
  7. What political examples can you think of where it would be / it was better to let sleeping dogs lie?
  8. When were you last in the doghouse? What happened?
  9. Can you think of any political event / personal circumstance / financial business, etc. where you can / could smell a rat?
  10. Can you think of any celebrity where one of the spouses got the lion’s share of what they had previously possessed together? Or anyone who claimed they got the lion’s share of the credit for the success of a film / play / show, etc.
  11. Can you remember a time when you thought to yourself you shouldn’t have counted your chickens before they had hatched?
  12. Do you know anyone who is impervious to criticism, when criticism is like water off a duck’s back to him / her?
