Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Bonnell Thornton
  Together like the two kings of Brentford smelling at one nosegay.  1
  Absurd as to imagine that the hair-lip or carbuncled nose a man sees in the glass, belongs to the figure in the mirror, and not to his own face.  2
  Discordant as croaking frogs.  3
  Dismal as the month in which Christmas is celebrated.  4
  Fresh and ruddy as a parson’s daughter.  5
  Horrid as the witches in Macbeth.  6
Rough repetition roars in rudest rhyme,
As clappers clinkle in one charming chime.
  Romantic as the Alcoran.  8
