Funny--I love idioms. That French expression was just recently on my quote of the day calendar. What a strange coincidence!

I shall be saying "my hovercraft is full of eels" all day, now. Thanks a lot! ;)

There was a website a while back - it may still exist - that was called the "I Can Eat Glass" project. The site had translations of the phrase "I can eat glass - it doesn't hurt me" into over 125 languages.

The idea was that if you used that phrase, people would treat you as an insane local, rather than a tourist.

I vaguely remember seeing that one, too. The site I linked to here has a link to another site that tells you how to say "Oh my god! There's an axe in my head" in various languages: http://www.yamara.com/axe/

Handy, as long as your accent is good!
