I found this article on the whole interesting and also very well written
The information shared does not seem to be readily fetchable. It takes a lot of reading.

I just want to add alternative English versions for a couple of them:

"Se armó la gorda" - All hell broke loose

"La tercera es la vencida" - The third time is the charm

Very interesting... Oct 12, 2012

to discover the root of these popular sayings. I was surprised to find that the "3 strikes" rule existed so long ago in Spain. The version I'm familiar with is "a la tercera va la vencida".
