QotD – Metaphor and language

“What the whole series is, is Harry camping Voldemort's respawn points, to use a videogame metaphor. ;) “ – Gregg in comments to Howard Tayler’s mini-review of HP7, part 1

I think this one is going to take the award for “best use of metaphor via slang” for 2010 for me.

(And, yes, there’s a reason I’m adding a “Harry Potter” tag for later use in the blog)
