And pigs might fly!

ブログ用Meaning:
‘Pigs might fly’ means ‘I don’t believe you; that will not happen!’. Think of times when you might want to say うそう; instead, you can say ‘Pigs might fly!’ This expression comes, of course, from the idea that a flying pig is a ridiculous and impossible thing.

Example:
A: So, I’ll clean the bathroom tomorrow.
B: Ha! And pigs might fly!

A: Did you hear? The government says they will give us a tax cut.
B: Pfft! Sure. And pigs might fly.


Talking Point(s):
Does Japanese have a similar expression to ‘pigs might fly’?
