Judy Rose at Writing English (also at Rose Petals), has a fun post that had me sitting there, giggling. Even after I had finished reading, gone to the kitchen to pour myself some Iced Tea, I was still chuckling. She posted The 25 Funniest Analogies (Collected by High School English Teachers) on her site, saying,
"I have to share these “funniest analogies” with you. They came in an e-mail from my sister. She got them from a cousin, who got them from a friend, who got them from… so they are circulating around. My apologies if you have already seen them."
Among these analogies are such literary gems as:
1. Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two sides gently compressed by a ThighMaster.
3. 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.
9. The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn’t.
12. Her hair glistened in the rain like a nose hair after a sneeze.
I could post all of them, but then you might not visit Judy Rose. If you could use a big smile, and some laughter, hit the link and go visit! You won't regret it.
Yeah, I'm still giggling!
