Brazilian Colloquialisms, Sayings, and Slang #37

Quem pariu Mateus que o embale - Whomsoever gave birth to Matthew [should/shall/ought to] bury him

A way of saying “you created the problem, you fix it.” More or less equivalent to “you made your bed, now you must lie in it.”

Literally, embalar in this context means “to embalm” (it can also mean “to wrap up/package”).
