The New Indian Express scales new lows!

Beneath one of those VIP does some work pics, they have the caption

Quote:

Chipping his bit. You couldn't make this stuff up! Oh, wait... they did.

Maybe a question for the "posting in English" thread, but shouldn't it be "plunges to new lows"? I thought only heights were scaled.

Cheers,

Haha, that is a nice catch! I agree it should be "plunges" unless the New Indian Express measures its success with the new depths it touches and hence "scales" will be equally appropriate. Scales new heights of success by touching new depths

You have it. My "mistake" was meant to be humour!

I am short on vocabulary & cannot caption this either,

"Mrityu Dand Group" is what is written on it's rear windshield

Translation (if only required by someone) - "Mrityu Dand" - "Capital Punishment"

A wider pic of the same car will also feature on the bad drivers thread, due the way it is parked.

The owner of the eatery must have had the proverbial wolf at his door once too often. That is one reason I could think of for these words .

Sir, to me it appears that the B suffixed with the Dum (to make it look Dumb) is more of a photo editing work than an oversight by the hotel management. Pls confirm whether it was an actual photo taken by you or merely a social media forward.
