    OK, something to lighten up all of us.

    These are the winners of the "worst analogies ever written in a high school essay" contest run by the Washington Post:

    :lol: :lol:

    He spoke with the wisdom that 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 now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it.
    (Joseph Romm, Washington)

    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.
    (Rich Murphy, Fairfax Station)

    The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn't.
    (Russell Beland, Springfield)

    McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a Hefty Bag
    filled with vegetable soup.
    (Paul Sabourin, Silver Spring)

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

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

    Her eyes were like two brown circles with big black dots in the center.
    (Russell Beland, Springfield)

    Bob was as perplexed as a hacker who means to access T:flw.quid55328.com\[email protected] but gets T:\[email protected]=20 by mistake.
    (Ken Krattenmaker, Landover Hills)

    Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.
    (Unknown)

    He was as tall as a six-foot-three-inch tree.
    (Jack Bross, Chevy Chase)

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

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

    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.
    (Jennifer Hart, Arlington)

    The politician was gone but unnoticed, like the period after the Dr. on a Dr Pepper can.
    (Wayne Goode, Madison, Ala.)

    They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket fences that resembled Nancy Kerrigan's teeth.
    (Paul Kocak, Syracuse, N.Y.)

    John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had also never met.
    (Russell Beland, Springfield)

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

    His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.
    (Chuck Smith, Woodbridge)

    HEALTH Q&A SESSION

    Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong
    life; is this true?
    A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and
    that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything
    wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not
    make you live longer; that's like saying you can
    extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want
    to live longer? Take a nap.

    Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and
    vegetables?
    A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a
    cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables.
    So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism
    of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain?
    Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass
    (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you
    100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable
    products.

    Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
    A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is
    distilled wine, that means they take the water out of
    the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness
    that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

    Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
    A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your
    ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your
    ratio is two to one, etc.

    Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in
    a regular exercise program?
    A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy
    is: No Pain...Good!

    Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
    A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!... Foods are fried these
    days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in
    it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

    Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little
    soft around the middle?
    A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets
    bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a
    bigger stomach.

    Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
    A: Are you crazy?! HELLO cocoa beans! Another
    vegetable! It's the best feel-good food around!

    Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
    A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales
    to me.

    Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?
    A: 'Round' is a shape.

    Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions
    you may have had about food and diets.

    And remember:

    "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the
    intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well
    preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways -
    Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body
    thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming
    "WOO HOO, What a Ride!"

    OK muscles are manly, but the manliness is completely negated and even makes you more of a woman when wearing leopard skin PERIOD!
