Today’s “Phrase of the Day” is “bite the dust” and its meaning is “fail, be unsuccessful, break down, collapse, be defeated”.
Example Sentence: The European Super League (ESL) was promulgated on Sunday, denounced on Monday, began to collapse on Tuesday and bit the dust – for now – on Wednesday. As failed coups go, this must be among the most ignominious ever.
