Please Fill in My Blanks

I'm just going to be up front:  I want to take advantage of you.

Alex J. Cavanaugh's Insecure Writer's Group brings so many talented writers to my place, and since the purpose of the group is to help each other out, I'm asking you to give it to me.  Help, that is. 

I'm writing a short story for a friend, and I'm stuck on a line---that's where you come in.  Please read and consider the following and let me know in the comments how you'd fill in these blanks:

"For the last ever-since-I’ve-been-here years, the holiday parties have sucked harder than (a) __________ on a teat full of __________."

The more innocent and less political the connotation, the funnier I'll find it.  Also, I want it to be fabulous.  No pressure...

Thank you for your participation. :)



Haha!  I am having so much fun reading your creative thoughts.  Just as witty as I expected.

It's Thursday now, so I'm going to piggy back this post onto the Author! Author! Blog Bounce, hosted by Omnific Publishing and open to ALL authors.
Happy Bouncing!

For the last ever-since-I've-been here years, the holiday parties have sucked more than getting my brand new Manolo Blahniks stuck in a sewer grate full of slushy snow mixed with dog crap.

Sorry, the best I can do, It's only 8 am and I'm not full of caffeine yet.

No pressure? Now I do feel insecure!
Anne's first one is really close to what I was thinking.

For the last ever-since-I’ve-been-here years, the holiday parties have sucked harder than Marilyn Manson on a teet full of ugly juice.

Mustang and motor oil?

Great idea, by the way! I may have to implement some...using...You know. For support purposes only :D

Mmmmh - couldn't find "teet" in my dictionanary, but think it must be the teat?
Maybe "the party sucked harder than an orphan cat pitifully adopted by a hen?"

Britta said...

Well - you will find 'dictionanary' either :-)

"...sucked harder than Rod Blagojevich on a teet full of jailtime."

Oh, sorry I was just listening to the news. Didn't mean to get political.
