Mensagem:  Other similar expressions:

to pay the piper = to accept the unpleasant results of something you have done; to pay the price
to have egg on your face = to be embarassed by something you have done
to drop a brick = to say something indiscreet or tactless; to commit a social gaffe
to be put to blush = to feel embarassed
to goof (up) = to make a silly mistake
to blunder = to make a stupid or clumsy mistake

But I still think that "to make a fool of yourself" is the best translation.
