the simile game

Woody Allen: Behind his black-rimmed glasses was the coiled sexual power of a jungle cat.
Me: She sharpened her wit like a vendetta.
Fuzzy: Is a vendetta a kind of knife?
Me: No.
Fuzzy: That’s a simile wrapped in a metaphor.
Me: Dude.
Fuzzy: She wrapped her similes in metaphors like the nested envelopes of a wedding invitation.
