The Conan the Barbarian of French fries

"The Anvil is the Conan the Barbarian of French fries. Its Thick, dangerous, intense and brings about the lamentations of the women. Preparing to eat this requires war planning."

The John Cusack of however the world ends

"It's hard not to get a kick out of the apocalypse. I don't mean the real apocalypse, whatever that may be. I hold out little hope that I will be the John Cusack of however the world ends, steering limousines and aircraft away from cities as they collapse into the earth. No, I'll probably be one of those background figures who you see for an instant, tumbling through the air. You'll know which one is me — I'll be snapping photos with my iPad on my way down."

The Marvin the Martian of Roman governors

"I feel sorry for Pilate. He was the kind of guy who just kept screwing up. He was, in effect, the Marvin the Martian of Roman governors, his delusions of power and grandeur constantly blowing up in his face."

The Charles Xavier of football chants

"We have all become accustomed to the now world-known 'P*ta,' that makes its appearance every time the opposing goalkeeper parts ways with the ball during the game. El Fua is the P*ta's Kryptonite, what Batman is to the Joker, the Charles Xavier of football chants; all Superhero metaphors aside, it is the counterpart to the p*ta chant that some tend to love and others hate."

Its like the Tyra Banks of the hamster family."

The Yo-Yo Ma of the rest of lunch

"Next, we trekked to a ger camp for lunch. The beef, salad, rice, and fries were hands down the best food we have had yet - a delectable symphony of flavors, each note playing softly on all the right taste buds. The classic milk tea accompanied the meal, and tasted like warm milk with a sprinkling of extra salty sweat (the Ke$ha to the Yo-Yo Ma of the rest of lunch)."

The Cee Lo of the Gospel

"Thanks for responding. I understand, yet my original question Who determines what is profanity?! I have read an acronym once for where the f word originated from. I won’t post it because I respect this man of God (Pastor Lewis) page. However, if the acronym is true, then somewhere along the line it was perverted. Please understand I am not defending the speaker by any means. I just think at times we are quick to call things evil , profane, worldly without truly taking a look at it. Honestly, he (the speaker) may not realize that he is wrong. BUT, if he is indeed attempting to be the CEE-LO of the Gospel, then yeah I think there is some carnality in his preaching. But, if he has good intentions and is truly attempting to reach the people, I get it. Just my opinion though."

The Keith Richards of concrete floors

"This whole project was correction of construction errors, as the building was originally a laundromat, had probably half a dozen cold joints, plumbing trenches, and holes and was a generally haggard 50-some-year old slab. It was the Keith Richards of concrete floors. The worst part was a combination of slabs in the floor with about a 2" ridge. More on that later: let's start at the front door."

"I can cut a person out of my life with great ease. I’m a great friend (if I don’t say so myself), I’m forgiving, and while we’re being honest I can be a complete asshole. If we can’t work out whats ailing this relationship, I become the Ron Swanson of friendships 'Slash it, Slash it' BOOM! you’re gone."

The Venus Williams of sex

"The Mister and I managed to bump uglies 5 out of seven nights this week (you can read all about it here, here, and here). There was a time, back when we were first together, when I would have considered this a dry spell. Nowadays it makes me feel like some sort of sex champion. I’m like the Venus Williams of sex. Someone should give me a trophy. Instead I will celebrate my victory by bestowing upon you my hard won sex wisdom."

The Rupert Murdoch of hamburgers

"In summary, this whole burger drama talking place between David (Milk Burger) and Goliath (Shake Shack) could prove profitable for one business here. Milk Burger just opened. They are not the Rupert Murdoch of hamburgers. I believe the owner. It was an honest mistake. He probably just looked at the material that was presented to him for sign off and quickly approved it. Now there is only one place to potentially go from here when you’re starting a business at the bottom…and that’s up!"
