    Ciao a tutti,

    qualcuno conosce questa espressione? L'ho trovata in un video con tre uomini in viaggio in macchina che arrivano a Philadelphia, il contesto è molto ridotto:

    a- Guys, welcome to Philadelphia!
    b- The City of Brotherly Love. And cheese steaks!

    c- I mean, I’m not the coldest beer in the fridge but this is an awful long ride to get a cheese steak, don’t you think?

    I tre sono una squadra che recupera oggetti e arredi da edifici che stanno per essere demolito, e "c" è l'ultimo arrivato.

    Grazie!

    I think it's just one more version of
    not the sharpest knife in the drawer
    not the sharpest tool in the shed
    not the brightest star in the sky
    not the brightest crayon in the box, etc.
    All meaning not the smartest or best one in a group.
