Going bankrupt, being out of money. Being poor, not having any money.
Losing at a game.
Derived from Nintendo Monopoly. When you lose or "go bankrupt" you see an image of the Monopoly man in front of a trash can with a fish bone in his hand. Looks like he is throwing away the fish, when I think he is actually meant to be picking from the trash.
I'd love to go out tonight but I am throwing away the fish.
I really want to buy that bike, but I really threw away the fish this week.
I really threw out the fish on that one.
