癞蛤蟆想吃天鹅肉
làiháma xiǎngchī tiān’é ròu
A toad trying to swallow a swan
用法说明
“癞蛤蟆想吃天鹅肉”是说癞蛤蟆想吃天鹅的肉。地上的癞蛤蟆很难吃到天上飞的天鹅的肉,这句话比喻一个人作不切实际的妄想。
“癞蛤蟆想吃天鹅肉” refers to a toad that tries to eat a swan. It is nearly impossible for a toad living on the land to eat a swan that is flying in the sky; and as a result, this is used as a metaphor which refers to a person who harbors an unrealistic delusion.
