  • A surprisingly widespread idiom, with a surprisingly diverse range of meanings. In German, for example, Ich gab ihr einen Fisch means "I gave her a slap upside the head"; whereas in French donner un poisson à quelqu'un is a literary expression meaning "give someone the hump", replaced in modern slang by donner un petit chameau. In Bizkaian Basque, arraina eman is "shudder", though in Navarre it's "wriggle out of a painful obligation". In Malay, saya mau memberi ikan-ikan kepadanya is accompanied by a sinuous gesture of both hands, and must never be uttered in the joint presence of a husband and wife, for fear of drawn-out and sanguinary revenge.
