A person who shall remain temporarily anonymous said, and I quote, ‘Phil has quite a way with words. But that picture of him makes his ears look bigger than they are.’
Hmmm. Not, ‘Makes his ears look big’, which could mean I have petite, elven ears, but ‘…. bigger than they are.’ That is, they are already big ears, and in this photo, they look really substantial.
Well. Next some one will make a tangential reference to nasal hair.
