these funny idioms French people use # 014

October 31, 2010
We don’t say Don’t get so chummy with me!, but We haven’t kept pigs together [On n’a pas gardé/élevé les cochons ensemble; both translation of keep are used]. Don’t get so chummy with me is actually a weak translation but it seems that English doesn’t have something more on the euphemism mode, more pictorial. That’s boring, if I may say.
