The Rosa Parks of boobies
"It seems to me that if a man can walk down the sidewalk without a shirt on and not get arrested, a woman should be able to also. I don't think you can have laws that discriminate based on gender in America. If I were a woman, I would do it and become the Rosa Parks of boobies." (Aug. 28, 2010, digg.com)
Everybody is the Rosa Parks of something—or at least the Michael Phelps, Cap'n Crunch, Dick Cheney, Elmer Fudd, or Paris Hilton of whatever. This blog collects examples of the adaptable idiom "X is the Y of Z", which is a snowclone. Feel free to use these descriptions when discussing your beautiful children, longtime companions, sworn enemies, favorite foods, and elected congress-scum.
