He’s a (blank) Fellow

writing-201Our writing assignment for today includes composing a simile. By definition, “A simile…makes a connection or introduces the idea of similarity between two concepts that aren’t intrinsically connected, leaving an interesting mental image in its wake.”

I don’t have a poem for today, but I can share some ditties that I have either said or heard over the years. A couple of these phrases may not fit the technical requirements of the assignment, but they do conjure up an image:

  • He’s more laid-back than an ironing board.
  • He could find a silver lining in a mushroom cloud.
  • He’s about as useful as a snooze button on a smoke detector.
  • He couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat.

What have you said or heard lately that might fit this list?

    I find more than a few people to fit that description
    The fact I still get amazed at human stupidity, is amazing!

      Thanks for your comments. I have found that trick to life is to identify, not compare.
