“Il boit comme un trou !”

Written by Anthony Lucas, French teacher since 2007

Il boit comme un trou

Literal translation

“He drinks like a hole!”

English equivalence

“He drinks like a fish!”

Listen to the pronunciation

Explanation / Comment

Just as a sponge can absorb a lot of liquid, a hole, by definition, is bottomless and so can absorb alcohol without limit.

Remember, though, that alcohol should be consumed in moderation.
