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.]]

** Creator/LewisBlack compared GlennBeck's constant [[GodwinsLaw comparisons of people/things he doesn't like to Hitler and Nazi Germany]] to the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon". Except there's only one degree and Kevin Bacon is Hitler.

* The FlightOfTheConchords song, "[[http://flightoftheconchords.wikia.com/wiki/Pencils_in_the_Wind Pencils in the Wind]]" is about how love is like a roll of tape, which actually starts out sensically, then gets... less so.

Compare TheOtherWiki's article [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_analogy on]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overwhelming_exception this]]. Except it's [[SeriousBusiness not always played for laughs]]. And the person doesn't have to realize they've made a Dissimile. But aside from that, exactly like TheOtherWiki's article.
