English, they say, is a funny language. Not because of the words, it doesn’t sound funny, in fact it sounds sophisticated even when you use abuses (at least as far as other vernacular languages are concerned). Then why do I call it funny you ask? Try dwelling deeper into the idioms, phrases and sayings that are a part of the language. They say “prevention is better than cure“, and then they also say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it“! No wonder the owner of this beautiful scale model didn’t know what to do!
P.S.: This isn’t mine, if that’s what you’re thinking. I am perennially confused, but I’m certainly not so naive that I would try to revive something so nice!!
