The Washington Post held a contest for teachers to send in the dumbest analogies written by their students. The resulting Best Of list (via The Lost Eyeball) will make Yoo-Hoo pour out of your nose they’re so ridiculous.
Here are my faves before I send you over for the whole list…
“She walked into my office like a centipede with 98 missing legs.”
“From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene had an eerie, surreal quality, like when you’re on vacation in another city and Jeopardy comes on at 7:00 p.m. instead of 7:30.”
“She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a dog makes just before it throws up.”
“They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket fences that resembled Nancy Kerrigan’s teeth.”
“The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law Phil. But unlike Phil, this plan just might work.”
Oh what the hell, they’re all good – head over below.
