Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Elbert Hubbard
  As much chance as a dog with tallow legs chasing an asbestos cat in Hades.  1
  No more chance than a one-legged man in a football game.  2
  Fine as a silver dollar saloon.  3
  Limp as bags of oats.  4
  Old as thought.  5
  A punster is to a humorist what a burro is to a horse.  6
  Rolls like a scow in the wake of a liner.  7
