    to be in a deep.....

    You will be in deep...
    I have heard an expression which sounded like "you will be in a deep menu de pad", meaning to be in big trouble.
    I cann´t find the expression.
    Could a native speaker say what the expression might be?.
    Thanks in advance

    Could you say anything about where you heard it? A movie, maybe, or a video game? AE or BE? Any context would help a lot. Without it it's like searching for a needle in a haystack.

    Was the accent 'ménu' or 'menú'?
    Was it like English /'mɛn ju:/, or more like German or French?

    This is probably going out too far on a limb, but is there any chance the context had to do with Latino or Chicano culture? If so, could it be 'menudo'? (= mexikanische Kaldaunen-/Kuttelnsuppe)


    You will be in deep menudo, pal
    You will be in a deep menudo pot


    Otherwise, the expression 'in deep _______' often has some creative equivalent of 'sh*t,' for which there are many synonyms. Doodoo, caca, guano ...

    I came across the expression once again. If you still want to help, I could make a short video clip where the the expression is used. If I could send you the clip in any way you could cleary hear it. Could you send me your email?.

    Wie wäre es, wenn du es auf YouTube hochlädst und den Link hier einstellst?

    Could it be „a deep manure pit“?

    re ##3,4 ... falls das nicht öffentlich gezeigt bzw. hier eingestellt werden soll, lässt sich sowas nicht auch per PM verschicken ?

    The clip is on Youtube.
    The cat is out of the bag.

    The link doesn´t work. If you write "Columbo, The cat is out of the bag" on youtube you will see the clip. At the end of the clip you can hear Columbo saying: If I find microscopic...... you will be in deep.....

    Meinst Du dieses Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DF0jWqfT-9U ?

    An welcher Stelle genau (min:sec) kommt der Satz ?

    #12Verfasser no me bré (700807) 15 Sep. 20, 23:07

    "you are in deep manure, Pat" -- Pat is the name of the guy he's talking to.

    Thank you very much. Of course, manure.
    #16Verfasser soltani (783871) 15 Sep. 20, 23:27

    I'm no Columbo, but happy I could help solve the mystery.

    #17Verfasser bishop_j (877745) 15 Sep. 20, 23:32
    You did solve it. For me you are better than Columbo. I appreciate your help very much.👏👏👏

    What a good idea that was in #6!

    I actually thought of saying so at the time, but I didn't, sorry. /-:

    Sorry for not mentioning that, Dragon!

    (I was going to make a joke about manure already appearing earlier in the thread, but I'll skip it)

    #23Verfasser bishop_j (877745)  16 Sep. 20, 16:09

    Okay, dann mache ich einen:

    Um zu sehen, dass das schon erwähnt wurde, muss manure genau lesen.

    #24Verfasser Jalapeño (236154) 16 Sep. 20, 16:26

    "You are in deep manure, Pat."

    No American would use that expression in that way. That is a euphemism, because U.S. broadcast television (unlike cable) cannot use strong language. The correct expression is: "You are in deep shit." Another euphemism, with a cutesy, childish sound to it, usually spoken with some irony, is, "You are in deep doo-doo."

    Peter! Great to see you again. Hope you're not too close to the path of either the fires or the pandemic.

    It may even be a while since you were mentioned in the missing persons thread, but we do think of you whenever someone turns up one of those classic collections.

    "It may even be a while since"

    Doofe Frage von einem, der bekanntlich eh kein Englisch kann und mit den Zeiten ein noch viel größeres Problem hat - müsste es nicht heißen "it may have been a while since"?
