This is the funniest thing I've ever read, and apparently it's real too. Taken from real high school essays:

High School Essays (Actual Analogies and Metaphors

its two other sides gently compressed by a Thigh
Master.

2. His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and
breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without
Cling Free.

3. 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 those boxes with a
pinhole in it.

4. She grew on him like she was a colony of E. coli
and he was room-temperature Canadian beef.

exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn't.


10. McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like
a Hefty bag filled with vegetable soup.

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.

12. Her hair glistened in the rain like nose hair
after a sneeze.

13. The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like
maggots when you fry them in hot grease.

14. 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
4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.

15. They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with
picket fences that resembled Nancy Kerrigan's teeth.

hummingbirds who had also never met.

20. The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law Phil.
But unlike Phil, this plan just might work.

21. The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you
get from not eating for a while.

22. "Oh, Jason, take me!" she panted, her breasts
heaving like a college freshman on $1-a-beer night.

23. He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical
lame duck, either, but a real duck that was actually
lame - - maybe from stepping on a land mine or
something.

24. The ballerina rose gracefully en pointe and
extended one slender leg behind her, like a dog at a
fire hydrant.

25. It was an American tradition, like fathers chasing
kids around with power tools.

26. He was deeply in love. When she spoke, he thought
he heard bells, as if she were a garbage truck backing
up.
27. She was as easy as the TV Guide crossword.

28. She walked into my office like a centipede with 98
missing legs.

29. Her voice had that tense, grating quality, like a

band tightened.

30. It hurt the way your tongue hurts after you
accidentally staple it to the wall.
