Schwarzer Peter

is a German card game but also an idiom. To push over the Schwarzer Peter (black Peter – noir) means to turn a situation in a way that someone else  has to take the responsibility for your wrong doings.

After figuring out that this was indeed the Schwarze Peter; it seems that he/she must be pretty busy right now (another government crisis in Belgium???) as you can see it all over the place.

  1. How did you figure out that it really is the Schwarze Peter?

    • You said so. And as I like the idea of a smily, mild tempered Schwarzer Peter who knows that it is not his mistake but those of the people pushing him around, I decided that you were right. Easy 🙂
