: : : (a series "what were you thinking")
: : : context: a car is pulled over on a routine stop.
: : : Sunddenly a man is splattered onto the car, and the narrator says:
: : : The driver doesn't look drunk, and everything seems fine until... this *bar fly* gets splattered onto the car. Where did he come from?
: : : My question? is *fly bar* a kind of slang? does he mean that the person had a lot to drink? (bar), or he means some object?
: : : thank you very much!!
: : 'Bar fly' may be used to refer to a person who spends too much time in barrooms.
: thank you Fred, I came to the conclusion that he means the fly bar of acrobats at the circus, because he comes suddenly and smashes on the car.
