IPhone 3GS + multimedia capabilities plus a combo of social web sites = vastly greater than the sum of parts. This is really one of those tipping points in technology.

Every year, English teachers from across the country can submit their collections of actual analogies and metaphors found in high school essays. These excerpts are published each year to the amusement of teachers across the country. Here are last year's winners...

1. Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two sides gently compressed by a Thigh Master.
2. His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.
3. He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it.
4. She grew on him like she was a colony of E. Coli, and he was room-temperature Canadian beef.
5. She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a dog makes just before it throws up.
6. Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.
7. He was as tall as a six-foot, three-inch tree.
8. 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 machine.
9. The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn't.
10. McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a Hefty bag filled with vegetable soup.
11. From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene had an eerie, surreal quality, like when you're on vacation in another city and Jeopardy comes on at 7:00 p. m. instead of 7:30.
12. Her hair glistened in the rain like a nose hair after a sneeze.
13. The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you fry them in hot grease.
14. Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left Cleveland at 6:36 p. m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at 4:19 p. m. at a speed of 35 mph.
15. They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket fences that resembled Nancy Kerrigan's teeth.
16. John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had also never met.
17. He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant, and she was the East River.
18. Even in his last years, Granddad had a mind like a steel trap, only one that had been left out so long, it had rusted shut.
19. Shots rang out, as shots are wont to do.
20. The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law Phil. But unlike Phil, this plan just might work.
21. The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from not eating for a while.
22. He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck, either, but a real duck that was actually lame, maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.
23. The ballerina rose gracefully en Pointe and extended one slender leg behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.
24. It was an American tradition, like fathers chasing kids around with power tools.
25. He was deeply in love. When she spoke, he thought he heard bells, as if she were a garbage truck backing up.
26. Her eyes were like limpid pools, only they had forgotten to put in any pH cleanser.
27. She walked into my office like a centipede with 98 missing legs.
28. It hurt the way your tongue hurts after you accidentally staple it to the wall.

Man, the things I miss…I never noticed the issues just under the surface of Little Shop of Horrors…

Original Article (scroll down):

From SuburbiaNation:

Seemingly a whimsical musical comedy about the dreams of working-class whites in the postwar era looking to escape the city and find a better life in the suburbs, the film takes the form of an allegory of postwar “white flight” to the suburbs, as its protagonist, Seymour, a meek clerk at a florist’s shop, must run for his life from a creature named “Audrey 2″… Shocked when he discovers the plant can talk - in a raunchy and confrontational, black urban dialect… Seymour becomes further terrified as the plant grows more aggressive, displaying an insatiable appetite and, when his demands for food are not met, eventually destroying the florist’s shop and ravaging the surrounding working-class neighborhood before he is finally killed. The paranoid allegorical rendering does not end there, however; after Seymour and his love, Audrey, manage to escape to their dream home in Suburbia, the final frame of the film reveals a small army of “Audrey 2″ plants growing amid the crabgrass of their front yard. A shockingly paranoid fantasy of racial conflict and flight, Little Shop of Horrors closes by confirming its own worst fears: that blacks might manage to escape the city just like whites and eventually “sprout up” on the suburban landscape.
