"落汤鸡"用英语怎么说?

更新时间:2019-10-11

“落汤鸡”,中文俗语,字意为落水或浑身湿透的鸡(a drowned chicken;a chicken in the soup),现在形容被雨水浇得浑身湿透(be caught in the rain and soaked through),极其狼狈的样子。

与英语短语“be like a drowned rat”意思相近,表示“to be very wet, especially because you have been in heavy rain”。

例句:

天哪,你都成落汤鸡了。你的车呢?

My goodness, you're soaked through. Where's your car?

他浑身湿得像只落汤鸡。

He was wet all over like a drowned rat.
