Where's the beef?

Idiom: "Where's the beef?"

Means  "Where is the content or substance?", as in "That was a very articulate speech, but where's the beef?"

This usage was originally the slogan for a U.S. television commercial for a hamburger chain attacking the poor quality of rival chains (1984). The phrase was almost immediately transferred to other areas, especially politics.

Cheers!

*_*

这我联想到一个中式笑话:
说有个人吃肉包子,老板抠门,肉馅太小。
所以“第一口,没咬着,第二口,过去了”。

所以人家就问“where's the beef?"了吧。
