Metaphorpsum

A wise– if perhaps slightly pedantic– generator of metaphor.

The europe of a balance becomes a toeless thread. Some assert that an undulled weed's visitor comes with it the thought that the spoutless nut is an owl. One cannot separate states from horrent calculuses. An armchair of the parade is assumed to be a hammy peen.

Options

Give me paragraph(s) containing sentence(s) each; wrap them in <p> tags.

Huh? Numbers please. Above 0.
