-->Vernon, who had been changing colors, as first horror, then anger, then full-blown rage, then fear had wandered through his consciousness, suddenly found himself having a joyful cruciatus experience, which is kind of like a joyful cappuccino experience except for it being painful and not having any caffeinated goodness...well...I guess it really is nothing like it after all.

A Dissimile is like when you eat a banana, but instead of peeling it, you compare it to another thing that is [[ConfusingMultipleNegatives not entirely unlike]] it. Also, instead of eating it, you deconstruct the comparison. And it doesn't necessarily have to be a banana, either, or any other kind of fruit for that matter. [[SelfDemonstratingArticle Actually, it is nothing like eating a banana.]] [[Series/DoctorWho Forget the banana.]]
