It is time again for A Thousand Words In Idioms. These are the words of Jientje, our lovely host at Heaven is in Belgium:
As long as people have been around, they have tried to communicate with each other. As a means of getting the message across as clearly as possible, idioms and sayings have found their way into our language. Now, because "a picture paints a thousand words", I thought it would be nice to make this a new photo challenge. The idea is to choose an idiom, or a saying, (even slang is allowed) and illustrate it with a picture. Each week we'll cover two letters of the alphabet, okay? The very first edition is here if you need some inspiration. If "language is the dress of thoughts" (Johnson), then idioms must be the wardrobe ...
This time I got my idioms from UsingEnglish.com. If you know another site, please let me know. Thank you.
M is for "Mickey Mouse"
If something is Mickey Mouse it is intellectually trivial or not of a very high standard. I would love to know why Mickey Mouse was chosen for this idiom definition? As far as I remember he belongs to the smart cartoons out there and is a leading character. LOL. The photo above is a part of my daughter's room wallpaper.
