    It's like watching Teletubbies hit the beach on D-day.

    Hopefully they were dropped from high altitude bombers.

    That comment is as funny as a <random noun> in a <random adjective> <random location>.

    Trying to think is like trying to breathe. You don't. (i think) (little out a breath here)... uh..yhe, you dont try to think your breathing, or i mean, you try not to think your breathing, gotta get some air.

    He poured wurster sauce on it like it was going out of style, and he had lost the receipt.

    Pouring too much unreturnable sauce is wurster than being woken by a cwowing wooster wif a cweft wip.

    OK that actually wasn't bad. I can think of a whole topic of black hole analogies.

    It would be dark, like the room when your eyes are closed.

    Yikes, thats sounds as turbulent as the wurster sauce isle at the mart the day they announced it was going out of style.

    That description was more vivid than the daughter of a hippy who was named Vivid.

    That's like the German sausage that was convicted and sent to jail; it was a term for the wurst.

    That's more inappropriate than a sausage pun in an astronomy forum.

    That's like having a frankfurter and eating it too in Frankfurt - or having a hamburger in Hamburg - or gobbling up a slice of Muensterer in Muenster.

    So far we've had silly similes, inane analogies and messy metaphors.

    So this thread is working overtime - like a tiler on the roof of a clock tower.

    Not to mention horrific puns - like the three-legged dog who walked in the saloon and barked "I'm lookin' fer th' guy what shot my paw."

    This thread reminds me of the time in the Caribbean, where the locals declared, as the moon darkened the sun, that it must be a "total calypso the sun".

    Mr Beardsley, this is supposed to be for bad analogies... your clock tower one was golden, like a wristwatch that also was golden.

    Puns are like analogies.

    OK not really, in fact according to Google nobody has ever said that before. Of course in a little while it will show up that I said it, which is like discovering you are the only person to ever trip over a spider web. But this entire fiasco did lead me to discover that "Puns are to the budding comic, as analogies are to the unemployed SAT question writer".

    Upon reflection, I have no idea what that means. It's like when the package says "total carbohydrates from fat".

    Or my brain, which is like the label on the cereal box that states "This package is sold by weight, not volume. Some settling of the contents may have occured."

    Since poor analogis are humorous, then alalogies must poor humor.

    Having your mispelled mis-worded poor analogy compared to a black hole is like completing your bucket list 20 years early.
