To have egg on your face



If someone has or gets egg on their face they look stupid
because of something that they have done. To be humiliated.

Example:
Paul couldn't understand Marie-Louise when she asked him a simple question
in French, although he has always boasted that he can speak French fluently.
When he left he had egg all over his face.
