Say your hometown collects garbage once per week yet, midweek, the stench becomes unbearable.
The trash bag’s too full to spin into a knot. Since there’s no twist-tie, either… you improvise… tie a red ribbon into a pretty bow.
Albeit less… it still stinks!
Say there’s a presidential wannabe whose exhaled tirades reek. His staff warns Dumbo re his political halitosis… but he’s in denial.
Ergo he deadpans, “You’re Fired!”
His new staff’s odor abatement ploy involves masking his stench… metaphorically giftwrapped / topped off with a pretty, Republican-Red bow.
However… unless that bow covers his mouth… he’ll still stink!
