Every country and culture undoubtedly has strange idioms and sayings. I mean, I still don't understand why English speakers say "apple of your eye." But idioms are often really good insights into a culture and can show how groups of people relate to each other. So luckily, illustrator Marcus Oakley has drawn ten of his favorite idioms from all over the globe. Some of the idioms he cites come from German, Italian, Polish, and Japanese culture, and a couple of them will most definitely make you chuckle. 

I have to say probably the scariest saying comes from France: "To Have The Midday Demon" means to have a midlife crisis. I think we would all feel safer if we just called it a midlife crisis and not a demon! Check out the countries' sayings and let us know which one you want to start using.
