Analogies and metaphors from high-school essays

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
1. The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn't.

2. McBride fell 12 storeys, hitting the pavement like a hefty bag filled with vegetable soup.

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

4. Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.

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

6. The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you fry them in hot grease.

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

8. They lived in a typical surburban neighbourhood with picket fences that resembled Nancy Kerrigan's teeth.

9. The thunder was ominous sounding, much like the sound of a thin sheet of metal being shaken backstage during the storm scene in a play.

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

11. The dandelion swayed in the gentle breeze like an oscillating electric fan set on medium.

12. Even in his last years, Grandpappy had a mind like a steel trap, only one that had been left out so long, it had rusted shut.

13. The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from not eating for a while.

14. He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck, either, but a real duck that was actually lame.

15. The ballerina rose gracefully on pointes and extended one slender leg behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.

Can't wait to see the novels this next generation produces! Quite colorful, I must say.

Poor McBride! Vegetable soup, eh? Well, they tried!

Those are hilarious, I've seen those before, but they always make me laugh. I really like #10 and 12.

#12 is actually an excellent analogy! (Not that all older people have closed their minds to new things.)
