Student Analogies & Metaphors- Star Crossed Lovers Version

All right, it's time for your latest installment of Student Analogies & Metaphors! The last installment featured maggots in hot grease and poor, slow Phil. Today we have the romance version to make you snort out loud!

1. Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two sides compressed by a Thigh Master.
2. John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had also never met.
3. Her hair glistened in the rain like a nose hair after a sneeze.
4. Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left Cleveland at 6:36 pm traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at 4:19 pm at a speed of 35 mph.
5. He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant and she was the East River.


Two and five make me laugh out loud, but number three is disgustingly hilarious. Which one made you snort your coffee out your nose this morning?

Is that a pun? Hmmm...

Hi V.S.! Thanks for following me too! Number 3 is a doozy, isn't it? :)

All of them cracked me up! But number 3 took the cake. I needed the giggles to get my juices going- thanks Stephanie!

I have to disagree with the consensus so far -- Number 4 made me do a spit take.

If I were reading that in an assignment I'd have to give the student extra points for managing to work that hated math problem into a sentence ... and use it correctly!

Michele Emrath said...

OMG I say #4! How creative to take it straight from a word problem in your math homework...and think your teacher won't notice!

This is fabulous - Glad I found this blog!

I love four. I have a feeling I'd like the smarty pants who wrote it, too...assuming that's sarcasm that I detect.
These are hilarious. You should definitely do more in the future.

These get me every time! ;-)

I have a surprise waiting for you at my blog today, Stephanie - come and see!

Two totally reminds me of "Choppin Broccoli" by Dana Carvey. "If I didn't know her...she'd be the lady... I didn't know."

#3 made me spit coffee, #4 made me roll my eyes... someone isn't happy about their math homework... :)

It's a tie among 1, 3, and 4 for me.

ROFL

#4 is my favorite. Though #5 would pull a close second.

L. T. Host said...

I'm going to pull for poor, hilarious #5 here!!

GO #5!!!!!!!! WOOOO!!!

They were all hilarious, though... ah, kids.

Caroline Starr Rose said...

Very nice. Yay, teachers!

Bethany Mattingly said...

I liked three and five, but number 1 got me for sure. I love these!!

Steph Damore said...

#5 I love. My hubby's Italian with some excellent mafia/family stories...

Natalie Murphy said...

I loved number 2!

Stephanie Thornton said...

Hmmm... I might have to tally some votes soon to see who the winner is. :)

Mary said...

Oh my gosh - these are hilarous. Love them all, but two and five got me rolling.

Lisa and Laura said...

OK, the hummingbird one totally made me snarf my diet coke. That is unintentional comedy at it's finest.

Just Another Sarah said...

I think I love number 5 the most...I liked all of them pretty equally, though. And I give kudos to number 4, as well. But 5 I think wins, for me!

JenE said...

I laughed out loud at number 2. These are too funny! I had to go back and look at the other posts as well.

Hey

I wanted to share with you a very unique site I just came across teaching [url=http://www.kravmagabootcamp.com][b]Krav Maga[/b][/url] For All Levels If you guys have seen the Discovery Channel TV Show called Fight Quest you would have seen their chief instructor Ran Nakash there featured on their [url=http://www.kravmagabootcamp.com][b]Krav Maga[/b][/url] episode. Anyways, let me know what you think. Is training via the internet something you would do?


regards

Steve
