For your reading pleasure, more examples of clever writers getting a specific point across:
- “Guys like Bruce were as common as white socks sold in six packs at the Wal-Mart.” – Jennifer Weiner in Good in Bed
- “Abiding by the rules worked until 2008, when someone let loose a pack of Irish Setter puppies in the high-rise of cards that was our financial and banking system.”
– Quinn Cummings in the QC Report
- “…the global banking system is about as stable as a guest on the Jerry Springer Show.” – John Heinzl in the always-funny Stars and Dogs column in the Globe and Mail.
I’m not sure this will work in a corporate setting, but it’s something to work towards!
