Idioms as Code

This is silly.

I wrote code depicting common idioms. You read the code and try to guess the idiom.

Answers are below the code (and, for clients viewing in supported readers, appear upside down like a children’s book).

pen > sword
>>> true

The pen is mightier than the sword

injury + insult

Adding insult to injury

let cost = arm + leg

Cost an arm and a leg

let chickens = [];

// TODO don't do this


Don’t count your chickens before they’ve hatched

let your_court = [ball];

The ball is in your court

if (numOfDancers === 2) {

It takes two to tango


There’s a method to my madness
