Idioms to share!

I have read this Idiom recently and would like to share it with those who are learning spanish like me.

¿Quieren compartir unos que ya saben? Hoy oí un modismo gracioso.

"Pedir peras al olmo"
literally means "to ask the elm tree for pears"
English Idiom Equivalentt: you're asking an impossible favour.

"Buscarle tres pies al gato".
Literal Translation: To look for three feet of the cat.
English Idiom Equivalent: To go looking for trouble.

but the one I have never got it is :
" culo veo, culo deseo"
if anyone have an explanation for it... Iam waiting for a reply

Perhaps you haven't noticed that we have an Idioms section.
You'll find what you're looking for here, and the other two you mentioned above.
