Many of you have read this list, or a version of it, at some time in the past. It’s been running around the internet since UseNet was the only place such things ran around in. Kids in the audience should consult their favorite paleontologist if they’re unclear on what UseNet is.
Origins of these analogies vary according to the version of the email or blog post. Popular theories include:
- Entries in a “bad analogy” contest.
- Text culled by high school teachers over the years.
- Some wise guy making stuff up.
Read ’em. Or — more likely — read ’em again. Funny and educational is powerful stuff.
And now, the contest…
Take one of the analogies. Mad-lib with it, keeping the same basic structure but turning it into the funniest thing I’ve read this year. Post your entries in the comments below.
For the winner, I will post word-for-word the compliment of your choice on my personal and professional Facebook pages, and do a guest post on the subject of your choice on your blog if you have one.
I’ll make my final choice next week and announce the winner in that Friday Fun post.
