Writer's Block: Over-the-Top Metaphors  
Detective stories are stereotypically full of over-the-top metaphors: "The villain's hand stroked the cat the way his sins stroked his black soul. His voice, rough as the city's nighttime streets and twice as terrifying, barked orders to his lackeys. They scattered like parents who just realized they forgot to pick up a child from school." Write a short scene using some of your own extreme metaphors and similes.

My cooking knife is as dull as Harry James Potter, who has never seriously contemplated the fact that one of his best friends advised his future wife to use up at least two unblamable boys just for the purpose of eliciting his attention.
