We often come across funny photos or videos on social media with people using several methods to convert metaphors into literal scenarios. In one such tweet, a user shared a picture of a stone that was shaped like a heart with a rib-tickling caption, which caught the attention of many on the micro-blogging platform. The English phrase ‘heart of stone’ means to be unkind or cruel. The metaphorical phrase is used to highlight someone’s unfriendly or unkind disposition, and it has no literal meaning. However, a Twitter user posted a photograph of a heart-shaped stone to give the phrase a literal meaning as he jokingly captioned his tweet, “Finally found the heart of stone today.”
The tweet featuring the heart-shaped stone was quick to go viral on Twitter and sparked a host of hilarious reactions from Twitterati. Posted yesterday (December 6), the tweet attracted a lot of attention and crossed over 3.6 thousand likes on the micro-blogging platform.
तारीख हजार साल में इतनी ही बदली हैं, जब दौर पत्थर का था, अब लोग पत्थर के हैं।— Priyanka Mishra 💫 (@Priyanka346723) December 6, 2022
A user wrote penned a poem, which read, “Taarikh hazar saal mei itni hi badly hai, jab dour patthar ka tha, ab log patthar ke hain.” It translates to, “Days have only changed so much in a thousand years, it was the stone age back then, and people are of stone in today’s age.”
