A few of these are some nice variations on some of Douglas Adams' work.

Batmanners:
Not quite. A simile simply compares two objects. A metaphor claims that the objects are the same. Your description wouldn't be correct for a statement such as "He was faster than a speeding bullet," which is a simile, even though it does not use LIKE or AS.

I'm pretty sure #28 is from the Simpsons or something, talking about a hobo in a fight whose prize is food or something. Maybe the episode where Homer gets the x-ray that shows that his skull is like a natural helmet so he goes into the world of amateur boxing.

I can't believe I remember that...

To add to my Simile example:
"The dog was as young as a baby"

Analogy seems correct to me.

Dog:Puppy/Old Man:Baby

"The dog was still a puppy, much like the old man on the street corner who goes through the trash, he was once a baby."

Putting things into perspective:

A simile would be a comparison "The dog was like a canine baby".

A metaphor is an analogy that does not use the words LIKE or AS to make the statement.
"When the dog was very young he was a puppy."

Hope this helped. I love figures of speech.

Some of those were pretty funny. I think 16 made me laugh the most though.

I could almost hear Leslie Nielsen reading some of those. Especially the one for the nameless dread. :)

these... are similes...

it's been a while, but aren't similes something different from analogies? or are similes a subset of analogies?

Some of these are intentionally very witty, like I'm sure #16 would make sense and probably be quite clever if it was in context.

Some of those were clever, like:

18. The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn’t.

Only problem with a lot of these is that the teacher doesn't "get it".
