Regarding:
the bee's knees: (idiomatic, colloquial) Something or someone excellent, surpassingly wonderful, or cool.
the cat's pyjamas: (idiomatic) A highly sought-after and fancy example of something, usually an inanimate object.
the dog's bollocks: (Britain, vulgar slang) Something that is regarded as outstanding.
and similar English idioms.

Do your natlangs and/or conlangs have similar idiomatic expressions? Perhaps with similar meanings?
