Sir you got hold of that idiotic story that was
going the rounds.
Does "got hold of" mean here "believe"?
My dictionary says "go the rounds" and "do the rounds"
So you think that "got hold of" means he read about it in a newspaper for example?
You think it can't mean he "heard" about it?
I've never heard "go the rounds" (maybe it's AmE).
There's a story going around.
