Is mothball a metaphor for a proposal abandoned or for a project shelved? When does history become a metaphor for geography? How did the metaphor hive provoke a globally-respected publication to jettison bylines for good? How does butterfly win its metaphor battle with the beetle?
Can chameleon be a metaphor for a colourful person? When does textbook become a positive metaphor for an individual? What is that useful metaphor in the frog-scorpion fable?
Is the albatross a metaphor now for power of flight or pathetic plight? Are all hounds pesky metaphors? Why is spine a wrong metaphor for physical heroism? Why isn’t maverick a metaphor for me-toos?
Metaphors are everyday business and everyone’s right of speech. So, it is high time you had questions like these answered by an expert like More Metaphoric Madness.
