Comment: If a news article

(See in situ)

If a news article

feels the need to lead the readers by their nose rings by adding the description "humble and sincere" to the story, then it wasn't humble or sincere.

Wow, speaking of nose rings, 50 years ago that meant a ring a bull had in his nose that was used to control him, but so many people have nose rings nowadays that the metaphor loses its meaning.
