I’m as tired as a very tired thing

I’m sure I’ve linked to this in the dim and distant past but here it is again because it’s a hoot: Worst analogies ever written in a high school essay.

A couple to tempt you:

The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you fry them in hot grease.
Gary F. Hevel, Silver Spring

Her hair glistened in the rain like nose hair after a sneeze.
Chuck Smith, Woodbridge

Thanks to Baldrick for the title quote.

    I have to disagree. Some of those analogies are superb.

    I think my favorite high school paper quote ever is:

    “Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas; if you smell it you should leave the area immdediately.”
