Overly Complicated Expressions

Post by Hlaoroo »

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.

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...

And I think that doing shows and their themes is a bit unfair as the same show may have a different opening theme and even name depending on where it was shown.
