And another: someone can be referred to as "not as green as they are cabbage-looking"!

Although I'm not sure which I prefer - looking like a cabbage, or being naive...

and a biblical (well King James's writers way of putting it)
Harsh words from a child to a parent, are
as sharp as a viper's tooth

My car has a pair of vindshield vipers, or snakes in the glass.

as vigilant as Cerberus[

Just learned of this yesterday.

I googled Cerberus and found this: "in Greek mythology, a three-headed, dragon-tailed dog that guarded the entrance to the lower world, or Hades . The monster permitted all spirits to enter Hades, but would allow none to leave. Only a few heroes ever escaped Cerberus's guard; the great musician Orpheus charmed it with his lyre, and the Greek hero Hercules captured it bare-handed and brought it for a short time from the underworld to the regions above. In Roman mythology both the beautiful maiden Psyche and the Trojan prince Aeneas were able to pacify Cerberus with a honey cake and thus continue their journey through the underworld.

"Might I point out, sir, that there are too many "o"s in your name?"

Ah, snoot. I love this "Famous Last Words" theme you've got going here.

Might indeed be an interesting new thread.
A "new" thread of "last" words?
