У тебя что, чувак, совсем крыша поехала? =  Dude, are you nuts?

« Обвести вокруг пальца - to deceive | Main | Как гора с плеч свалилась - a load off one's mind »

Проще пареной репы - as easy as pie

Проще пареной репы  - as easy as pie, as easy as falling off a log (= very easy)

Последний вопрос был проще пареной репы. = The last question was as easy as pie.

Сделать этот салат проще пареной репы. = Making this salad is as easy as falling off a log.


Literally the idiom means "easier than steamed turnip"! Not many Russians cook turnip now, but the expression is still very common.
