And now, some obviouser comedy!

Winners of the "Worst Analogies ever Written in a high school Essay" Contest:

Her date was pleasant enough, but she knew that if her life was like a movie this guy would be buried in the credits as something like, "Second Tall Man."

He spoke with the wisdom than 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 goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those little boxes with a pinhole in it.

She caught your eye like one of those pointy hook latches that used to dangle from screen doors and would fly up whenever you banged the door open again.

The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn't.

McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a Hefty Bag filled with vegetable soup.

From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene has an eerie, surreal quality, like when you're on vacation in another city and "Jeopardy" comes on at 7p.m. instead of 7:30.

Her hair glistened in the rain like a nose hair after a sneeze.

Her eyes were like two brown circles with big black dots in the center.

Bob was perplexed as a hacker who means to access :flw.quid55328.com\aaakk/ch@ung but gets T:\flw.quidaaakk/ch@ung by mistake.

Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.

He was as tall as a six-foot-three-inch tree.

The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you fry them in hot grease.

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 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at 4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.

The politician was gone but unnoticed, like the period after the Dr. on a Dr. Pepper can.

They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket fences that resembled Nancy Kerrigan's teeth.

John and Mary never met. They were like two hummingbirds that had also never met.

The thunder was ominous-sounding, much like the sound of a thin sheet of metal being shaken backstage during a storm scene in a play.

The red brick wall was the color of a brick-red Crayola crayon.

...and my very favorite:

His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.

I like Boopies analogy..."They spot land and they land on the land"

Personally my favorites were

1)Her hair glistened in the rain like a nose hair after a sneeze.

Only because I had a really strange thought like that once about someones hair.

and

2)The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you fry them in hot grease.

I just want to know who the hell fries maggots and why!

Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two other sides gently compressed by a Thigh Master.

"Her hair glistened in the rain like a nase hair after a sneeze"

That's great! :-D

One of my favorites was in a book (I don't remember which one):

"Thunder rolled. It rolled a six"
