nope, can't trick me like that. (you put two periods in my name where in fact, there is only one.)

plus, i write my posts in proper english, not "texting".

consider yourself warned.

Freaky or what?! I was having lunch in the park with my mum a second ago, and she was wondering what "hoist by their own petard" meant!
Are you reading "We need to talk about Kevin"?

Hoist on his own petard:

Meaning

Caught in your own trap.

Origin

A petard is an explosive device used to break down doors or walls. Hence - hoist on ones... Used by Shakespeare in Hamlet 'For tis the sport to have the enginer / Hoist with his owne petar'. From the French 'péter' - to fart.
