These have been floating around the internet for a while as “actual analogies used by high school students,” which, after reading through them, I can completely understand why everyone would believe that! They are so bad…and yet so accurate at the same time that I can positively believe that a high school student may have written a few, thinking they would impress their teacher.
In fact, this list was part of a contest held by the Washington Post back in 1999. Nearly 20 years later, they still make people giggle at their desks anytime they come across it. Take a look for yourself! Too funny.
These are just so…bad…and good! How is that possible? I am not sure that I would be able to come with anything quite this…obvious. My favorite one off of this list is #7, “The lamp just sat there, like an inanimate object.” Really? Did it? Did it actually sit there like an inanimate object? I nearly spit out my coffee reading this one.
Which ones are your favorite? Do you think you could do better? I’m tempted to try…just to see if I could!
