An allegorical or is it metaphorical comparison?

Speaker’s Corner is like a bathtub!

The posts, ideas and opinions expressed are the bathwater in which we, the forum members splash around in.
Most of us are like rubber ducks, bobbing about on the surface occasionally dipping our bills in.
Some are like the hot and cold water taps, coming on strong and altering the temperature, when the topic becomes lukewarm.
The F.E. of course is the hand that firmly grasps the chain – pulling the plug, as and when is necessary.
Me, I see myself as a sponge – soaking up lots but only releasing info or topics when squeezed.

Nice metaphor! Very creative, Brumas, I like it.

  DrScott 20:47 22 Oct 06

Surely a simile?

  Brumas 20:50 22 Oct 06

Praise indeed! thank you.

  Kate B 20:50 22 Oct 06

Yes, and an extended metaphor.

  Brumas 20:51 22 Oct 06

Or even an analogy.

I've recently completed a City and Guilds course on the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 and if I spot a contravention in this metaphor I shall inform the authorities!

There must be a plug, for one thing.

Truthfully - from inside my own head.

Now and again there are the piranha.

But, wonderful Brumas, post more, we need your wit.

I've been called worse things, I suppose.
