Brazilian Colloquialisms, Sayings, and Slang #43

Eminha é filhote de ema! - A little emu is an emu’s baby!

A play on the words é minha (it’s mine) and eminha (little emu). Often used by parents when their kids are arguing (it’s mine, she can’t have it!” etc) as a way of saying “it’s not yours/stop arguing/give me that” etc.
