Hey guys! Welcome to [Phrases] today!

He jumped down my throat? That sounds terrible! Well, in fact, to jump down someone’s throat is to respond sharply or angrily to someone. Imagine this: a guy opens his mouth trying to say something, and before he can utter a word, you “throw yourself down his throat” to stop him.
