Carlos, love your tangos. Fantastic!
He runs with the hares and hunts with the hounds.= He pretends to be a friend of everyone. (Imagine a politician who has lunch with union leaders and at dinner he then gives a speech at the Chamber of Commerce against unions and labor. Or maybe you are talking about a judge who says he believes in punishing criminals severly, but he belongs to an organization that is trying to legalize bank robbery and kidnapping. A man can be a hare (lebre) or a hound (cachorro), but he can't be both and remain honest.)
A hare lip is a rare lip.
I've never heard this expression. "A hare lip" (lábio leporino) an odd thing to make jokes about.
