I made this series as a follow on from a previous post I made a few years back. Some of these illustrations are brand new to the collection while others have been given a fresh new look. I hope these can help people who are learning the English language and that this can be a fun way to learn some of the funny expressions that are used on a daily basis.

Similar idioms are "Not the sharpest knife in the drawer", "not the sharpest tool in the shed.", "not the smartest piggy in the litter."

I've usually heard it as "tempest in a teacup" -- but that might be a Britishism. It's pretty rare. People are more likely to say "Make a mountain out of a mole hill."
