Kettle of fish (Short video)

The phrase of the day is: "Kettle of fish"

  • An unpleasant or messy predicament. (Often used ironically in the phrase a pretty or fine kettle of fish)
    [ --- They haven't spoken in years, and they're assigned to adjoining seats-that's a fine kettle of fish . --- ]
  • A very different matter or issue, not necessarily a bad one. (Used as another or different kettle of fish)
    [ --- The new proposal is quite a different kettle of fish from the last one. --- ]
