Figure of Speech


TEACHER: I returned from work, opened my door and saw 50 million naira on my bed. Assuming you were in my shoes, what will you do?”

SEGUN: I will bite your toes until you faint. I will then come out from your shoes and take all the money!

TEACHER: Fool! You can’t literally be inside my shoes. It’s a figure of speech.

SEGUN: You can’t literally open your door and see 50 million naira on your bed in this Buhari economic recession. Who will keep it there? That’s a figure of impossible speech.
