Hey, have you ever thought about the phrase "You're toast?"
Earlier today my mom burnt a piece of toast and as she threw it in the garbage and with a perfectly straight face she told me that "It's toast."
It just struck me so funny! I mean "Of course the toast is toast! After all it's toast."
The idiom can be defined as "you've reached the end of the trail." The idiom's etymology can be explained as "toast is quickly as easily devoured."
That being said have you ever thought what if we applied this idiom to another common and even more quickly devoured food? Just picture the hero in your favourite action/western movie now glaring down the villain and with all seriousness saying, "You're a cookie!"
