Going down like a lead balloon..

To go down like a lead balloon?

That must mean that you something goes down pretty well then? Yeah, you would think. Balloons float because they are light (especially helium ones). One made of lead would be HEAVY, and the law of gravity suggests that a heavy balloon would plummet to the ground. The heavier it was, the faster it would fall. So, by this reckoning I hearby declare to everyone who thinks that ‘go down like a lead balloon’ is a negative statement; You’re wrong!

If one was lucky enough to go down like a lead balloon, then one would be going pretty darn fast and making an amazing job of going down.

Don’t let any one else tell you otherwise!

    All often accept phrases into daily usage. It takes humour such as yours to point out the triteness in some of them to the rest of us. Thanks
