Best analogies ever written in a high school essay



While perusing my friends' blog, Voodoo Village, I came across a link to a site with the title "Worst analogies ever written in a high school essay". I assume the intention of the site is for people to laugh at how bad these kids' comparisons are but I think some of the analogies are pretty amazing. I am totally ripping them off in the future.

Here are some of my favourites:

"Her hair glistened in the rain like nose hair after a sneeze."

"He was as tall as a six-foot-three-inch tree."

"The politician was gone but unnoticed, like the period after the Dr. on a Dr Pepper can."

"He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it."

"John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had also never met."

there's a line in the book i'm reading at the mo that reads, "like a thing not in use, it was useless". not quite as colourful as yours, but just as redundant.
