Student Analogies & Metaphors- The Final Round!

I know you've all been waiting for this- the final round of student analogies and metaphors!

And the crowd goes wild!


1. The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from not eating for a while.

2. He was lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck, either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mind or something.

3. The ballerina rose gracefully en pointe and extended one slender leg behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.

4. He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant and she was the East River.

And my all-time favorite...

5. It was an American tradition, like fathers chasing kids around with power tools.


If you missed the others, there's some here, here, and here. I hope you enjoyed the goofiness!

I've always loved #2. #4 is pretty great too, though. Thanks, Stephanie! :-)

Hahahaha!!

Ok, I love #3 for it's ability to completely ruin a nice visual by introducing dog urine into the equation...
And #4 is actually hilarious-- in the right context,it could totally be pulled off!

So hilarious
