    Talking have sb in stitches

    I looked up that Idiom in the website and I didn't find it, so I looked it up in the internet and found that according to have sb in stitches | idiomcenter.com the meaning of the expression is: to cause somebody laugh a lot.

    I hope it's helpful for anybody who was looking for the idiom and didn't find it in any dictionary.

    Merriam-Webster online: in stitches : in a state of uncontrollable laughter <he had us all in stitches>

    Cambridge online:
    in stitches INFORMAL
    If a joke or an amusing story has you in stitches, it makes you laugh uncontrollably.


    What exactly did you search for?

    I look it in Cambridge Dictionary, Oxford, wordreference.com, etc... the thing is that I was looking for it as I found it on a book: to have somebody in stitches....

    Thanks for replying!

    Clue for everyone:
    If you're looking for the definition of "to have someone in stitches", you don't look under "to" or "have" or "someone" or "in".
