A chain is only as strong as the weakest link

Today's English language post is not dedicated to Anne Robinson!

This English idiom is also a proverb meaning that a team, army or system is most vulnerable at its weakest point.

The Weakest Link became the name of a popular general knowledge quiz in which the weakest contestants were removed one by one.

To add pressure, they were interrogated by an aggressive game show host. Booo!

Meet Anne Robinson, the patron saint of evil witches!

You are the weakest link - goodbye
