similes i'm proud of

Me, in an architectural meeting today: "Trying to pick and choose which changes you want to merge would be like straining shit through cheesecloth."

I'm not entirely sure what I meant, but I like it anyway.

That reminds me of another simile I made in a meeting a couple years ago, when we were discussing adding features to a tight schedule: "We can't absorb any more features. We're like a urine-soaked sponge."

When in doubt, turn to scatology.
