English term or phrase:stick that in your hair and rub it
A variation of the expression “put that into your pipe and smoke it,” meaning, “digest that, if you can.” An expression used by one who has given an adversary a severe rebuke.
Sempre a prosposito del tizio che dice di essere Gesù Cristo, uno degli interlocutori afferma di averlo messo alla prova, rivolgendogli una preghiera...
...And my prayer wasn't answered.
Stick that in your hair and rub it.
Anche in questo caso, mi sembra che sia un'espressione originale. Avevo pensato a "mordere la polvere", ma non mi convince.
