What's Your Worst Analogy?

What's Your Worst Analogy?

Analogies can be really good...or they can be really bad. And sometimes they can be so bad that they're really, really good. Case in point: this list of analogies that we stumbled across on the web. There's something about "She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a dog makes just before it throws up" that makes us laugh til we cry.

These wonderful specimens of hilariously terrible writing (which say they're written by high school students) were part of a bad analogy contest done a few years ago. And now we'd like to extend that contest to you! What's the worst analogy you can come up with? Leave 'em in the comments below!
