English term or phrase: get the chopper
If anyone was going to "get the chopper"...
Marilena Vaccarini
Italian translation:"essere silurato"
Explanation:
Suona come "get the ax", quindi "essere licenziato" ma senza contesto, al solito, come facciamo?

Se il contesto conferma la mia ipotesi, il verbo "silurare" mantiene il tono gergale.

Buon lavoro,

Floriana
