An analogy is both the cognitive process of transferring information from a particular subject (the analogue or source) to another particular subject (the target), and a linguistic expression corresponding to such a process. That is the technical term, the logical term is that analogies provide clearer examples of what one is talking about – it provides one with clarity and a universal social example that most can relate to. And often, they can be very funny, witty, and dumb – nonetheless, they provide amusement. So here are some of the witty, dumb, and funny analogies:
The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn’t.
The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law Phil. But unlike Phil, this plan just might work.
The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from not eating for a while.
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 7:00 p.m. instead of 7:30.
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.
John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had also never met.
He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant and she was the East River.
Even in his last years, Grandpappy had a mind like a steel trap, only one that had been left out so long, it had rusted shut.
She walked into my office like a centipede with 98 missing legs.
Hope you were able to laugh a bit at this, cause boy did this help pass by time @ work!
