octochan: this sounds like a subtrope of Buffy Speak
: Removing the natter on The Light Fantastic:
- And the variations that "wooly thinking is like fuzzy logic, only less so" and "a wowhawk is like a goshawk, only more so".
- I think someone missed the joke. A goshawk is a real-life bird, the joke with the wowhawk is the whole "gosh" and "wow" part. You'd tend to say "gosh" when you're mildly surprised and "wow" when you are more surprised. It's not a Dissimile, it's a pun.
If it's not a Dissimile, why is it here?
