One of the true measures of language proficiency is how well someone can use idioms (see example). Idioms can not be translated directly into other languages, and confuse foreign students who can not translate them word by word. Millions of dollars every year are given in grants to linguists who research the true origins of idioms - some of them are quite entertaining.
Choose any idioms and depict them literally. You are welcome to use English idioms (here's a good directory of them), or idioms from any other language (in this case please explain the meaning of an idiom in the creator comment section of your entry).
Proverbs and common phrases are also acceptable in this contest.
Many thanks to Tpbob for the contest concept.
