Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Henry L. Mencken
 
  Ferocious as a bogus archangel full of cocaine.  1
  About as sincere as the look upon the face of an undertaker conducting a nine-hundred dollar funeral.  2
  Swore like a preacher’s son.  3
  Swears like a printing-office foreman and yearns for close quarters with a knife.  4
