    fit in or into?

    Hi,

    Is ''I can't fit into/in the bottletop'' correct for humorous remark?

    Re: fit in or into?

    Both variations are grammatical, but neither makes me laugh.

    In what context do you want to say this?


    bottletops:

    Is this an idiom from your native language? I'm curious to know where you found that expression.
