"The gonads are like true duct glands in that they discharge
their secretion through ducts, but this secretion, unlike that
of other duct glands, is not discharged into and consumed
by the parent body."
"Son of a green wind.
Bitch queen of the toilet bowl,
Your gonads are like fantastic maracas.
You smell of Kurdistan
And your intellect is somewhere between mediaeval
And a cabbage
That has been left to populate
A regimental latrine.
Mix that with your eyelids!"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
