Slovene idiom for "to give up". Literally, it means "to throw the rifle in the corn(field)".
Today, after the ruling coalition disastrously lost three referenda yesterday at the polls, the Slovene prime minister, Borut Pahor, told the press: "As long as we hold the responsibility for running the country, we are not going to throw the rifle in the corn!" ( Dokler imamo odgovornost za vodenje države, ne bomo vrgli puške v koruzo!).
