Literal Translation: My axe fell into honey.
Meaning: Something unexpectedly good has happened to you. Although an accident involving an axe doesn’t necessarily evoke happy connotations, this one is extremely positive. Supposedly when this phrase was coined honey was a rare treat and if your axe fell into honey you would be glad to have to lick it of or something. Licking honey off of work tools is not ideal but it’s still sweet, so shut up. Maybe if your axe fell into honey, you wouldn’t have to work anymore. Whatever the reason may be, if your axe fell into honey, you should be happy and not ask unnecessary questions.
Use: When your plot doesn’t backfire.
