Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am really a regular diehard (Puritan) because I am slow in the uptake of the usage of phrase in bold in the following sentence?
The pound is sliding down a grease pole.
Would you said that the expression “fall down with a crash” isn’t so expressive as the mentioned above barbarian and uncouth one?
Thanks for your efforts.
It does mean that something is falling very fast.
I would suggest that the correct version should be either "greasy" or "greased" pole, as "grease" is not an adjective.
