fun with German

Ha! I just learned a new phrase, and it was so cool that I had to dig out the chiclet-laptop to share it: you know the English idiom, “a bone to pick”? Means you’re miffed about something someone has done and you want to tell them? The German equivalent is “ein hühnchen zu rupfen” – a chicken to pluck.

Hee hee.
