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."
