To have egg on your face

If someone has or gets egg on their face they look stupid
because of something that they have done. To be humiliated.

Paul couldn't understand Marie-Louise when she asked him a simple question
in French, although he has always boasted that he can speak French fluently.
When he left he had egg all over his face.
