Friday Phrase: Live like a maggot in bacon

Live like a maggot in bacon - German.

Idioms always tend to paint a strange picture and this is possibly the most intriguing picture I can imagine!

Leben wie die Made im Speck means to live luxuriously, which is pretty true if you're a maggot in bacon :-)
