Need A Laugh? – World’s Funniest Student Analogies

imageReading these student analogies/metaphors, will have you laughing your socks off. I found these “Annual English Teachers’ awards for best student metaphors/analogies” on Bill Gross’ Google+ page. Hilarious – definitely worth a read.

A quick taste:

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.

The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling
ball wouldn’t.

The ballerina rose gracefully en pointe and extended one slender leg
behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.

  1. Great analogies. Had me laughing. Great stuff.

  2. very good !

    On Gross’ google+ I also found this oldie, but goodie…

    Two beggars were sitting side-by-side on a street in Rome.
    One has a cross in front of him; the other one, the Star of David.
    Many people go by and look at both beggars, but put money only in the
    hat of the beggar sitting behind the cross.

    The Pope comes by, stops and watches throngs of people giving money to
    the beggar behind the cross, but giving none to the beggar sitting
    behind the Star of David.

    Finally, the Pope goes over the beggar behind the Star of David and
    says, “My poor fellow, don’t you understand? This is a Catholic
    country; this city is the seat of Catholicism. People aren’t going to
    give money if you sit there with a Star of David in front of you,
    especially when you’re sitting beside a beggar who has a cross in front
    of him. In fact, they would probably give money to him just out of

    The beggar behind the Star of David listened to the Pope, turned to

    • Hi Michael,

      Had me laughing out loud, and that doesn’t happen often when I’m on the Net. 🙂

      It might be an oldie, but goodie – but, I hadn’t heard it. Hilarious and, best of all – there is a powerful business lesson here. An effective way to teach it, too. 🙂

      Thanks for that.
