best metaphor ever.
Laughed. My. Ass. Off!
Holy carp. All the hilarity, awesomeness, and bizarrity, but THIS is what I had to comment on. That is indeed probably the best metaphor ever spoken by a rodent. Or possibly anything with fur.
Naughty Digger! The comment “Quicker’n” makes it quite clear that the porpoise/snot comment was simile and not metaphor! Accursed confused idiom!
On the other hand is someone tried to point out the difference between simile and metaphor to me whilst I was being chased my those foul cold servants I’d go to work on them with a pickaxe handle if I thought I had time.
And shrews aren’t rodents Jon, but its a common misconception. They are members of the order Soricomorpha, like moles.
yeah… feel free to throw things. I cant help it…
Might I just say that I want a troll. So badly. They are like, the cutest things ever imagined.
Actually, BunnyRock, it’s a metaphor. Similes use ‘like’ or ‘as’.
Nobody wants to hear this, but a simile is a subset of metaphore, so there are situations where both titles apply… /pedant
No, BunnyRock is right, it is a simile. The use of the phrase “quicker than” makes it a comparison to a real thing, not an unconnected hypothetical situation. (In this universe, I’m not sure it would surprise me…) If the trolls were /slower/, Surka would have said “as quick as” instead. The “like” or “as” thing is a rule of thumb; there are exceptions to almost every rule.
Does anyone else think the troll in the last panel is wagging its tale while waiting for Digger to get on? I want a troll!
PMSL~!!!!!!! I hope its not “dry” snot
Second Rowanmdm. Cute tail-wagging trolls are cute.
I agree with Digger…that’s got to be the weirdest metaphor I’ve ever heard.
I wonder if they are slimy
