I have a few idiom that I am stuck on can you help?
1) STAY COOL
2) SUPER STAR
3) FAST FOOD
4) TOP BANANA
TOP BANANA - originally, the comic who headlined a show. If it was a comedy show with various comics, the star of the show was referred to as Top Banana. Now, it is used to refer to the most important person in an organization or group.
A star in English is someone who is famous. It symbolizes the height of a person's social status. "You're going to rise so high in Hollywood, you'll become a star." It also represents the fact that lots of people look at that person, just as many people look at stars. Super in English means "more than," such as Superman (more than just a man), a supercar (such as a Lamborghini; it's more than a regular car). It's a prefix similar to "ultra" or "mega".
So a super star is a person more famous than a regular famous person. Gwyneth Paltrow and Jude Law are stars. Tom Cruise and Angelina Jolie are super stars.
