Amusing Spanish Idioms

For example, in English when we say “it’s raining cats and dogs” we mean it’s raining heavily, it’s a downpour. Like the cats and dogs example, idioms are fun, colorful expressions and the direct translation of an idiom from one language to another is often hilarious. Below are some of my favorite Spanish idioms. This is not an exhaustive list of Spanish idioms but rather a selection of amusing Spanish idioms that at one time or another caught my attention. No tiene dos dedos de frente. Tiene más lana que un borrego. A otro perro con ese hueso. La carne de burro no es transparente. Cada quien tiene su manera de matar pulgas. Da un beso a la botella. El hijo de la gato, ratones mata. Antes que te cases mira lo que haces. Más vale pájaro en mano que cien volando. Mientras que en mi casa estoy, rey soy. Yo tengo una tía que toca la guitarra.
