Mensagem:  To get into a mess. to get (oneself) into a jam. To fall flat one one's face. Examples: Márcio knew he had gotten (himself) into a jam after tipping his paper boat over 500km off the coast. Some sharks immediately swam in to check... Talk about getting into a jam. The other day M attempted to catch a bus, but the bus caught him first. "A Republican in Colorado _fell flat on his face_ trying to steal campaign signs touting John Kerry and other local Democratic candidates." --Google "He fell _flat on his face_, shocked from puzzlement." --Google Espero que tenha entendido o conceito. Abraços!
