Fun with Analogies

Bing McGhandi over at Happy Jihad's House of Pancakes* coined the following in his post of yesterday:

"Ron Carlson is to evolution what Paris Hilton is to circumspect modesty; they know nothing of one another."

This inspired me to come up with similar formulations:

"Vera is to science what aphasia is to speech: The greater the effort, the more complete the garblage."**

"Sye's logic is like a cow shitting in a hurricane: Produces something potentially useful while simultaneously wasting it."

Hmm. Okay, that second one is lame. But the first ain't bad.

Anybody else wanna play?

  1. Kirk Cameron is to science what Kirk Cameron is to acting.

  2. Haha, that was awesome, Geoff!

    Sye's logic is to logic what Sye's logic is to logic.

    Hmm, maybe not. There's just too many funny combinations though!

    Came over from Stephen Law's blog. Good stuff here. Keep up the good, funny work.

  3. Terry is to a "science person" what English is to cuisine, they form oxymorons when put together.

  4. lol

    Alright, lemme try.

    Ray Comfort is to intelligence what Richard Dawkins is to religious.

  5. OHHH (In the Black English Vernacular) GEOFF, Low Blow!
    Kirk Acting, Milk through the NOSE!!!

    Props, Props

  6. Bible quotes are to Rayniacs what sleeping pills were to Heath Ledger

  8. Sye's arguments are to rational discussion what olestra is to the digestive tract; at first glance, they seem beneficial, but they are soon found to be without any value whatsoever, and are eventually squirted out the other end, essentially unchanged.


Unlike Ray we don't censor our comments, so as long as it's on topic and not spam, fire away.
