  • into one little comparison.

  • Again: He is a pig.

  • You could share the details of your brother's disgusting behaviors.

  • You could list the reasons for your displeasure. But "He is a pig" gets the point across in

  • a snap. Don't you think?

  • Just don't let your brother hear you saying that, otherwise (metaphor alert!) you just

  • might be toast.
