Idioms game with SBD prizes (number 6)

in contest •  last year  (edited)

EDIT: Please if you are Dutch/Belgian please leave the "correct" answers for other people from other languages, so we can all have fun! The prize for the "funny" answer is bigger. Bedankt!


Waiting for a train, and then a plane and then... So, what better time to write up another idioms game!

Anyway, I'm changing the rules a bit so that you can enter BOTH a serious and a funny entry for each picture. That way, you don't have to choose! Also a little increase in the prizes!

I am learning Dutch, and here are some idioms that I am trying to learn. Idioms are the name of the non native speaker, they are the sayings that mean something completely different from the literal meaning. Which makes for embarrassingly funny situations when you are learning the language.

To play this game, no Dutch is needed, I will give the literal translation in English.

Rules

  1. Have a go at trying to guess the meaning of each picture/idiom. You can enter BOTH a serious and a funny entry.
  2. Do it for each three!
  3. So to be clear: Each picture, a funny entry and a serious entry!
  4. Winner is at post payout. For the first serious correct entry (of each picture) there is a prize of 0.05 SBD. For the funniest (determined by me!) entry (for each picture) there is a 0.1 SBD prize.
  5. So, 6 prizes! You don't have to make an entry for each, but please make it clear so I know what is going on!

‘Walking in the soup’
Wahahahaaaahahaa
Laughing till I cry here :,0D

I do hope you’ve got a lot of pages left in that book, because this is the most amusing thing on SteemIt.

Sorry, gotta laugh some more...
Wahahahahaaa
;0)

I got to save up some VP so I can upvote the answers...

·

I've got lots of cards. I'm trying to figure them out at the same time as everyone else!

When you see them, do you think of the literal translation? Or, you just jump to the real meaning?

·
·

Often I’m glad you put the idiom underneath, or I wouldn’t know. They’re showing the literal translation, so the first thing that comes to mind is the literal meaning. Only afterwards it’s transformed into the ‘real’ meaning.
I’m really curious what else you got on your cards :0)

·
·
·

Ha ha, I'm messing with your Dutch!

  ·  last year (edited)

1.a) misleading someone
b) sure ain't easy balancing a clown on my nose, I'd rather have a pin on my nose anytime.

2.a) to stop fighting and make up

3.a) to careless, disregard everything.
b) did someone say that the soup was hot? nah, see for yourself, I'm walking in it.

Thanks! Handy layout there! (1)

alright cool. recently a lot of scams has been sprouting up :/

1— Iemand bij de neus nemen
Taking someone by the nose

This seems like the English "to pull someone's leg" or in Spanish "to take someone by the hair". I find it funny because here in Latin America we have the stereotype of European people being long-nosed, so to each their own stereotype-based worries.

2— Het bijltje erbij neergooien
Throw down the axe

From the text, the first thing I thought was "to surrender", "to give up". But from the image, I thought it was about asking someone for their hand in marriage.

And from the meme perspective:

Maybe the Dutch have a Dwarf line of thinking and go throwing axes at projects they want to join.

3— In de soep lopen
Walking in the soup

I would imagine it's someone in some kind of trouble or intense situation.

Ex. "I'm knee deep in the soup and your asking me to blow up balloons?"

·

This gets the mind thinking a bit.
For the 1st pic

  1. Funny, looking down your nose at others is permitted in this area.

  2. Serious, One-way walkway

  3. Funny, Axe's available for rent to cut down daisies.

  4. Serious, Drop the Axe Enjoy nature.

3, Funny, Freshly Squashed tomato soup available here.

  1. Serious, Walk-in for a bowl of soup.

I may have mixed the funny and serious up and placed them wrong lol

Are they real signs seen on the street?

·

Ha ha, no not signs. These are a card game for helping learn idioms!(5)

lol totally missed the plot n this one, was still fun

  1. To take someone by the nose.
    S. It means to go by most outward appearances.
    She took Chad by the nose and now she is a homeless prostitute.
    F. It is similar to popular saying of grabbing women by the pussy.
    If chad tries his sob story on you, take him by nose and toss him out.
  1. Throw down the axe.
    S. It means to try to have a fair fight.
    Why don't you throw down the axe and turn off that calculator?
    F. It means to put aside one's electric guitar.
    Well, you gotta throw down the axe if you gotta raise three kids alone.

  2. Walking in the soup.
    S. It means to have a lot to deal with.
    I'm walking in the soup with three wild kids and then Chad comes in.
    F. It means to have to dodge around in a conversation.
    It's like walking in the soup with Chad and his political correctness.

Serious:

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #54. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest List I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!

·

Thanks for adding me to the list!

·
·

My pleasure!

De wedstrijd is gewoon een leuk spel omdat niet-Nederlanders geen idee hebben. Als je Nederlands bent, is het te gemakkelijk! Maar doe wat je wilt!

This is an awesome idea! @simplymike told me about it...I think she's still laughing at "walking in the soup" haha

  1. Taking someone by the nose:
    (serious) Leading someone to a proper conclusion
    (funny) There's a saying: you can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose. Or can you? :)
  2. Throw down the axe.
    (serious) It means to surrender, or be the one to offer an olive branch...to stop the fight.
    (funny) It's a bit like "to throw down some beats", but more dangerous ;)
  3. Walking in the soup.
    (serious) Oh, we're in trouble now!
    (funny) "Hey Martha, your soup tastes different tonight. What'd you add to it?"
·

Thanks for the entry! Funny stuff there, this is going to be tricky to judge! (16)
