Changing Metaphors

Recommended Posts

For years, I've warned customers not to allow vines to grow on their houses. Wisterias, in particular, can grow large and powerful in a short time so I describe them to my customers as "the Arnold Schwarzenegger of vines."

After today, I'll have to find a new metaphor. After I made the comparison, the realtor looked at me and said, "Why? Will they try to feel me up as I walk by?"

The Hulk Hogan of vines?

No one under 40 would know what I was talking about.

Face it, they don't know what you're talking about anyway. [:)]

The Hulk has a reality TV show, so that's why I picked him.

The Johnny Weismuller of vines, now that would get some funny looks from your clients.

Hulk Hogan, the wrestler from the '80s?!!? Gee that must be a really good show. I'll have to tune in sometime.

Next thing you'll be telling me that they brought back the A-Team.

Nah, it'd be confusing because Johnny swung on vines. (Besides, he was even worse than Arnold in the lechery department.)

The Mother of all Vines

MOAV. Not bad.

Mother will never do wrong, but technically, "the mother ..... of all" is short for MuthaF#$%er. Better stick with Hogan, or Mr T if you must. Every 30 year old remembers Mr T, but 10 year olds know who Hulk Hogan is.

And don't worry about Arnie. He'll be baaack.

Why not just call it the Hulk of vines? Most folks have seen or know about the Hulk movies.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!
