Could you please tell me if there is any expression like:
…pigeon fell or the statue?
In fact, recently I was seeing an American movie in which the hero said to the heroine at the end of a conversation.
…so was it the pigeon that fell or the statue?
Since the conversation was not about pigeons or statues, I assume it to be some fixed phrase. Do we agree?
Please do tell me anything if you know about the phrase and when it is used.
