    Extend that Metaphor!

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by PlotDeviceManager, Jun 17, 2013.

    I've a wonder, if I may?

    In my eighth grade English class, we played a game, called "Extend that Metaphor!", but it's not exactly what it sounds. The point was to take a familiar quote, platitude, metaphor, or saying and extended it using "scientific and specific words" until it is thoroughly unrecognizable, but (and this is the important bit) still understandable.

    Ex. - The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. <--- This was my metaphor back then ;)

    Extension - The short, flowerless plant covering much of the Earth's surface is eternally and without exception, a stronger and deeper hue on the opposing side of the barrier, railing, or other upright structure, typically of wood or wire, enclosing an area of ground to mark a boundary.

    Next Post - Extend this Metaphor!

    Anyone want to play?

    A warmblooded avian descendant of theropod dinosaurs held in the prehensile, multi-fingered extremity located at the end of an arm or forelimb of a homo sapiens values at twice the going currency when compared to two of the same aforementioned avian descendant of theropod dinosaurs when these two other examples are housed within decorative shrubbery often used to define property borders.

    The indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole as well as the alternate rising and falling of the sea will under no circumstances, stay in one place or delay for any male homo sapient.

    A loop of thread or yarn resulting from a single pass or movement of the needle in sewing, knitting, or crocheting enclosed or surrounded by the steady progression of events through space, can exempt the necessity of more loops of thread or yarn, specifically the mathematical summation of one and eight.

    The retention of a coin equal to 1/100th of a dollar, the base unit of fiat money within a variety of monetary systems, is equal in value when compared to a similar coin garnered as the result of a return on investment or labour in favor of the investor or laborer.

    A solidified and rounded remnant of ancient geological expulsion, whilst traveling with some velocity due to the effect of gravity, will invariably accrue no particulates of common flora such as algae.

    Inform me of the identity of the person or persons with whom you engage in mutual locomotion with and I will divine your personality traits.
