 "Salir de Guatemala y entrar en Guatepeor"

Do you know this Spanish saying? It means that sometimes you try to avoid danger or trouble but get into worse situations. It plays with the words "Guatemala", the Central American country, and "Guatepeor", a fictional country. "Mala" is the feminine adjective for "bad" and "peor" means "worse".

In the image above, frying pans and fire are featured. Can you translate this saying by now? Of course, it's "Out of the frying pan and into the fire".
