Bad Metaphor And Simile Contest Winners Announced

Well, you wowed us. We laughed until we cried. The metaphors that you all submitted to our bad metaphor contest were real stinkers! And we loved them all.

As you know, there can only be one winner to receive an awesome Writer’s Relief T-shirt. But in this case, we couldn’t break the tie, so we’re announcing TWO winners! And of all the metaphors and similes, the ones we loved (hated?) most were sent to us by Chuck White and Patricia Harrington.

Here they are:

Chuck White’s Winning Entry: Her two front teeth looked like a couple of Chiclets that weren’t on speaking terms.

Patricia Harrington’s Winning Entry: He sat down heavily, like a Mack truck dumping a load.

Thanks to everyone who played!
