Just in time for Thanksgiving, here are three funny English idioms which use the word “turkey.”
talk turkey: Now that we bought this new house we need to talk turkey. It is going to be a lot more expensive and we may need to cut back on other things. (to discuss a serious matter, to talk business)
go cold turkey: Quitting smoking is difficult. I suggest you just go for it and do it cold turkey. Make that your last cigarette! (to give up or stop doing something abruptly)
to be a turkey: Who is the turkey that left the coca-cola in the freezer? It exploded and left a mess all over the place! (to be an idiot or fool)
Have a great holiday!!!
