A simile is the comparison of two unlike things using the word 'like' or 'as', e.g. an example of a simile would be as big as a bus. Here are a few more examples from http://www.saidwhat.co.uk/spoon/similes.php

  • As agile as a monkey
  • As alike as two peas in a pod
  • As annoying as nails scratching against a chalkboard.
  • As bald as a baby's backside
  • As bald as a badger
  • As bald as a coot
  • As beautiful as nature
  • As big as a boat
  • As big as a bus
  • As big as an elephant
  • As black as a sweep
  • As black as coal
  • As black as one is painted
  • As black as pitch
  • As blind as a bat
  • As blind as a mole
