AN anecdote about work has turned into a hellish mess of ill-advised comparisons.
Comms manager Tom Booker has continued to introduce similes to clarify earlier metaphors and is now unable to escape.
Colleague Carolyn Ryan said: “He’s deployed an elephant in the room, a forest invisible because of trees, a herd of cats and an alien invasion fleet, but none of them make sense and he just keeps going deeper, like Inception.
“Also, like Inception and Call of Duty, it turns out that the fourth level of metaphors is always a snowy one. Who knew?”
Booker said: “I think one more analogy, this time to Jesse Owens at the 1936 Munich Olympics, should put the lid on the whole thing.
“I just really want everyone to understand the extent to which Claire is being a bitch.”
