Handily TruthInTelevision. Has a lot of overlap with {{Dissimile}}. Compare AnalogyBackfire, SidetrackedByTheAnalogy, ShaggyFrogStory, DisorganizedOutlineSpeech, ILikeMyXLikeILikeMyY and MixedMetaphor. Because this often uses realistic diction, it can also subvert RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic. BuffySpeak uses this a lot.

Because if you just keep going, then eventually your body runs out of shit and moves on to pushing all of your internal organs out of your sphincter, until only a foul-smelling shell remains, and anyone who wants to get in on your incredibly long poo gets turned off, because they need to have gone through all of the other from Topeka at 4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.poo up to that point to have the necessary context and this is where the analogy is breaking down somewhat."''
