– At this level, the game shows you two beach buckets and letters COMP and ARISON above and, respectively, below. If you take a look at the big picture, you will see the buckets are inside the word COMPARISON. If you read the buckets as “pales" you get Pales – In – Comparison, because this is where they are.
– When something or someone pales in comparison with something or someone else, it means that it appears less attractive, less important, less serious, a bit worse even. It is an expression to actually praise the features and the characteristics of the object you compare an item or a person to.
