The 56 best/worst analogies

Kind of late to the game on this one but here are the 56 best/worst analogies via the House of Figs blog.  

Originally it was believed that the analogies came from a high school kids although they're actually from a Washington Post bad analogy contest.  Either way they're quite amusing.

Some of the bests ones are:

8.  He was 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.

33.  The politician was gone but unnoticed, like the period after the Dr. on a Dr Pepper can.

48.  I felt a nameless dread.  Well, there's probably is a long German name for it, like Geschpooklichkeit or something but I don't speak German.  Anyway,  it's a dread that nobody knows the name for, like those little square plastic gizmos that close your bread bags.  I don't know the name for those either.
