Translate a foreign phrase incorrectly (even if you know the correct meaning) according to what it looks like and by guessing its meaning.

I'll start. Here's 2 related:

Carpe diem.
fish of the day.

bon appetit
watch for the bones

You're going to have to bear with me on this one.

https://www.freud-museum.at/files/inhalte/Ausstellungen/Parallelaktionen.%20Freud%20und%20die%20Literaten%20des%20Jungen%20Wien/Sigmund%20Freud%2C%20um%201906%20%28c%29%20Sigmund%20Freud%20Privatstiftung.jpg

This is Sigmund Freud, google images and you'll find he was always a sharp dressed man.

Sharpenfreude.

Sorry, I know it's more of a pun but I've not been up long.
