I want to hear some idioms


Мне нравится идиома: "Penny wise, pound foolish." К сожалению, это слишком часто можно применить в жизни. Слишком.

Does anybody know the expression "the hole nine yards". I saw the move but also i've read a book ""Jack and Jill" where one the personage said "Yes. It's hole nine yards"

"Jack" "Jill" are the nicknames of US President and his wife which are used by Presedent Sercurity.

What does "feather in a hat" mean?


Also ?feather in a cap?, I believe it means a completion of something. Like a last detail to something. Does it make sense?

The Baptist Cowboy

A cowboy walks into a bar in Texas, orders three mugs of Bud and sits
in the back room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes
them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.

The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You know, a mug goes
flat after I draw it, it would taste better if you bought one at a time."

The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in
Australia, the other is in Dublin, and I'm in Texas. When we all left home,
we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days we drank together.
So I drink one for each of my brothers and one for myself." The bartender
admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The cowboy becomes a
regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and
drinks them in turn.

One day, he comes in and orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice
and fall silent.

When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender
says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my
condolences on your loss."

The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns and he
laughs. "Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains, "It's just that my
wife and I joined the Baptist Church in Sweetwater and I had to quit
drinking ...................
Hasn't affected my brothers though." :D

Кто-нибудь использует в разговоре какие-то выражения или словечки из "их" сленга?
Например - bla bla bla / oops / sucks / rulez :D

А то как же! Обязательно. Кстати очень помогают когда нужных слов не хватает...
