“Friday Levity” returns on Thursday (not necessarily back by popular demand).
Check out the following photo from a Chinese website selling English language lessons.
Always good for models in an advertisement to exude friendliness.
The fellow waving “hi” to the reader looks fine.
But the girl’s wave is so close to her face it looks like she’s thumbing her nose at the reader (missing the old nose by an inch or so.)
This prompted me to pull up the definition of:
“thumb one’s nose at someone or something”
Whether you prefer the literal or figurative definition, I suspect this isn’t what the company had in mind.
