Another Spanish saying and proverb 81
26 September 2018 @ 11:57

      Today I would like to tell you a very funny Spanish expression: "El chocolate del loro” ("The chocolate of the parrot").

      This expression is said, ironically, to describe as ridiculous those saving measures that, in reality, do not save anything. Like the one that, according to the saying, the lady of the story took, depriving the poor parrot of his daily ration of chocolate.

The chocolate of the parrot

      Or that expensive Duke, who put on alert by the administrator, about the progress of his estate, he thought and after a while said: "Very well, here, indeed, you spend too much and you need to make savings. Let's see: Baptist: when the Duchess and I go out at night, the two lanterns on the fence are lit, until we return; well, from now on, with only one light, it's enough. Issue concluded”.

A small latern

      Well, I hope that you will like this saying.

      Until my next post, kind regards,
