I'm watching Die Hard and it's at the part where the guy says "eat your heart out channel 5"

I never got the meaning behind "eat your heart out". I get that you're saying someone is jealous but wtf does it have to do with "eating your heart out".

Some others that I never understood:

I slept like a baby... Obviously whoever made this up never had a kid. 

Dog tired 

The proof is in the pudding 

The worm has turned (seriously wtf at this one)

As all get out

Anyone else struggle with any every day sayings?

The worm has turned
Refers to even the idea that even the most harmless and meek creature will turn on you when pushed too far. So if some dork at school beats the shit out of his bully you could say "my how the worm has turned"


The proof is in the pudding is a shortened version of:
the "proof of the pudding is in the eating"
Which basically means you have to try something to see if its good or not. Pudding in england refers to all deserts, and before that some sort of sausage/haggis type food.


Dog Tired refers not to dogs, but some english lord would have his sons chase his hunting dogs and whoever caught more would get to sit at his fathers right hand side, but they would be "dog tired" from the activity.

"as all get out" sounds stupid as fuck. I instantly want to assault someone when they utter this phrase. Luckily, I've only ever heard it on television and in movies since no around here uses it.
