In front of the Forbidden City ((e)n1) an eight ball (八) has been fixed to the top of a Christmas tree (木), and on top of the eight ball a cooking top is balanced carefully so that it doesn't topple over. On the cooking top a lot of water bottles (氵) are standing so that everything is perfectly balanced. As Sherlock Holmes (sh) comes along he finds that this construction is very interesting, and he makes a profound (深) mistake with a deep (深) impact: as he takes down only one of the bottles the whole thing collapses and all the other bottles break as they fall on the ground. Soon, Sherlock Holmes is in deep (深) trouble as the water from the water bottles gets deeper and deeper (深). - Mnemonic by Matthias, about 1 year ago | add a painting
