The Dan Marino of bath-time

"Miranda actually came up with a good analogy. She thinks I’m the Dan Marino of bath-time, i.e. I’m great at what I do, but I’m missing that one big component. For Marino it was the Super Bowl; for me it is bathing my daughter."

  1. i hope you find this interesting:

    i just read this in a confederacy of dunces by john kennedy toole:

    "christ, who wants that old factory? nobody's buying the kind of pants they make anymore. that's all my father's fault. when pleats came in in the thirties, he wouldn't change over from plain-front trousers. he was the henry ford of the garment industry."

    the novel, as you no doubt know, was published in 1980 but written in the sixties. so this instance of the 'x is the y of z' snowclone is pretty old.
