    Ah, there's nothing like a long weekend to think about language! I was looking at this site: http://www.omniglot.com/language/idioms/flyingpigs.php and noticed that there's no Greek expression listed to refer in a colorful way to something that is not going to happen...ever! How to say when hell freezes over/when pigs fly in Greek?

    what about "στις 32 του μηνός" (="when the month has 32 days")? It exists also in WR dictionary.

    Thank you, Eltheza! You're a veritable dictionary of "That'll be the day!"s. You must be using them all the time. :)
