Stupid People - Bad Metaphors

"The revelation that his marriage of 30 years had disintegrated because of his wife's infidelity came as a rude shock, like a surcharge at a formerly surcharge-free ATM."

These metaphors are as bad as something that is really, really bad. (And the best thing is, they're not even metaphors.)

Hee hee. Thanks for the link! My personal favorites are the physics train problem one, and this:

"Oh, Jason, take me!" she panted, her breasts heaving like a college freshman on $1-a-beer night."

I'll keep that gem in mind in case I ever embark on a lucrative romance-novel writing career...
