Post Overly Complicated Expressions
The aim of this game is to guess the common phrase/idiom/proverb/saying/expression from the overly-complicated and overly fancy way that the person before writes it.

E.g.
Player 1: "One member of class aves located in the metacarpo-phalangeal region is equal in value to two members of the same class located in a small to medium sized botanical specimen."
Player 2: "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."

If you get it right you get to create the next overly complicated expression!

Here's the first challenge:

"Each member of genus Rosa is in possession of a cortico-epidermal extension."

Good luck!

You're on the right track, NAF, but not quite there!

Yours is "birds of a feather flock together".

Mine is still the one before that's yet to be solved. I edited it a little to make it more obvious.

"Should you be experiencing an influx of endorphins and should you be aware of this fact please indicate this sonically via the striking together of your metacarpophalangeal regions."

This one's a catch phrase, so I'm not sure how many people will get it.

Atmospheric conditions producing optical effects within the vicinity of 650nm in the evening produce an euphoric effect in those engaged in the husbandry of animals of ovine persuasion however the same conditions in the morning are an indicator that vigilance is warranted for those same people.

A visual representation of an object has the same value as M sounds or combination of sounds that have a meaning and are spoken or written.

i think that might be "chew on this" but it could also be "bite me"... the fact that masticate means chew, not bite suggests the former, but the self-referential terms say the latter... hmmm...

feline warriors trained in both bushido and preparation of Psudo-Italian confectionery (Correct). they are efficiently dispatching the criminal element from the area and that is certainly not a fallacious exaggeration.

Minions? And fair enough on the openings thing. Shows can be changed a lot when shown in other countries.

The thing you just suggested might be the single most incompetent thing my audio receptors have ever encountered.
