ScreenHunter_01 Apr. 11 08.44 A fun list of bad (brilliant?) metaphors and other attempts at creative use of language, supposedly taken off of high school essays but also some of them intentional (as in part of bad writing contests).  Via Daily Dish.  My favorite?  "Shots rang out, as shots are wont to do."  What's yours?

I've seen the boat/bowling ball bit in other contacts, though the language was somewhat different. Wonder if that one's an urban myth....
