Surley she would be more likely to land / end up "tits down"
unless they were Helium filled or sommat.
This is like another gripe of mine
Why oh why do we=others use the expression
"that went down like a lead balloon"
this should mean it went down / was recieved very well
as indeed a lead balloon should be very good at going down
instead it means the opposite?
