When kids write...

Kids say the darnest things... But that's nothing compared to what they can come up with when asked to write!

Check out this list of metaphors and analogies that teachers from across America found in some high school essays...

Haha... this was perhaps one of the funniest things I've read in a while! My personal favorites are:

8. The revelation that his marriage of 30 years had disintegrated because of his wife’s infidelity came as a rude shock, like a surcharge at a formerly surcharge-free ATM machine.
24. He was deeply in love. When she spoke, he thought he heard bells, as if she were a garbage truck backing up.
