Quoting from the opening sentence of an article in this morning’s AJC by Dave Hirschman.
Hip-deep in a pizza-sized hole, electrician Ken Hunter crimps some of the hundreds of miles of wiring that soon will illuminate the $1.28 billion fifth runway at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
How deep is a pizza-sized hole? Pesonally, I’ve never had a pizza that I could be hip deep in.
What I find most amusing about this was I didn’t realize what that sentence really said (pizza sized deep vs. pizza sized round) until well after I was finished reading. There are so many different phrases out there that we all know what they mean, but that’s not exactly what we say. This one gets added to the pile.
