Analogies - what are they?

Do you know what analogies are?
Here are some amusing examples...

"Her hair glistened in the rain like nose hair after a sneeze." Chuck Smith, Woodbridge

Please post your own funny or weird examples.

I'll try too....

"The Room5ians explored kakepuku the way a teenage boy scours his face for zits to squeeze."

perhaps that's a bit yucky...
