Some old, some new, some borrowed - oh wait! No these are all borrowed. Have a read through a collection of some of our favourite anaologies. 

 

  1. The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law George. But unlike George,this plan just might work.
  2. "The sea was angry that day my friends - like an old man at a deli trying to send back soup." - George Costanza.
  3. I laughed like a hyena standing astride a rotting hippopotamus carcass.
  4. Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two sides gently compressed by a Thigh Master.
  5. 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 of those boxes with a pinhole in it.
  6.  She grew on him like she was a colony of Ecoli and he was room-temperature Canadian beef. 
  7.  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.
  8. John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had also never met.
  9. 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.
