* ''WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged'' has this example from episode 3's narrator: -->'''Sir Jack Dapper''': And in time, Kirito found that he could almost tolerate [the Moonlit Black Cats], much like a fat man tolerates the tapeworms in his intestines. And like those tapeworms, that guild burrowed deep into his innards, and gorged themselves on his leftovers, until they began causing abdominal pain and diarrhea. I realize the metaphor's breaking down a bit here, but granny Dapper didn't raise no quitters.

* Buzzfeed comedy writer and [=YouTuber=] [[https://www.youtube.com/user/zefrank1 zefrank1]] creates a series of videos called "True Facts" where he very loosely discusses facts about various types of animals, such as the octopus or the sea pig. His analogies and metaphors usually start reasonable and then very quickly go downhill.

[[folder:Comic Strips]] * A 1984 installment of Matt Groening's ''ComicStrip/LifeInHell'' included a few supposed quotations about love by great philosophers from history. They all follow this trope and become increasingly bizarre and ridiculous, finally finishing with this one: "Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. [[ExitPursuedByABear At night, the ice weasels come.]]" -- Nietzsche * In ''ComicStrip/{{Frazz}}'', Caulfield once asked if life is a journey, and a sled ride is a journey, does that mean that the sled ride is a simile?
