Bad similes, analogies, and metaphors

From a clipping of the Oregonian, sent to me by my parents. Original authors uncredited. Possibly that's for the best. Still, I think these are hilarious and I tip my hat to them...assuming they meant to be funny, that is...

His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.
Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.
Her hair glistened in the rain like nose hair after a sneeze.
He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant and she was the East River.
Shots rang out, as shots are wont to do.
He was as 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.
The whole scene had an eerie, surreal quality, like when you're on vacation in another city and "Jeopardy" comes on at 7 p.m. instead of 7:30.
Her date was pleasant enough, but she knew that if her life was a movie this guy would be buried in the credits as something like "Second Tall Man."
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.

Hee. OK, now I go back to the amazingly huge stack of essays and tests I'm supposed to grade. Nice talking to you.

His pants billowed in the wind, much like a large fluffy bunny who could fly... after being shot from a cannon... bleeding... his pants were messy.

this anonymous user thing is the pits.
A suburban distance lying across your chest, a purpled frock befitting the asphyxiated, cans of lima beans upon your knees, you are truly a goddess of disturbed tranquility

Pelting you with Raddishes I beseech thee!

Swarms of chocolate poodles lavish your swollen gums.

My heart skips beats like vomiting polar bears dancing through mosquito netting.

If panties could talk yours would have a nasty throat infection due to poor circulation and dust mites...

My appologies to Molly for running amok on her thread.

You three are a pack o' nutballs. And it is wunderbar to see you all running amok again in my immediate internet vicinity. Hee!
