    TIGHTER THAN A DRUM ... anything more unique or creative

    I appreciate your reply and help, but I am hoping to come up with something that is a little bit funny or at the very least will put a smile on my readers faces. Do you have any other idess? I seem to have writers block. I appreciate any further help you can give me.

    Thank you kindly,
    Scott

    Tight as Roseanne Barr's pantyhose
    Tight as Joan Rivers' face
    Tight as Dolly Parton's training bra

    Thanks, I wound up using the somewhat humorous:

    'And while this top-ranked Boston University Hockey squad goes out every night with the expectation of winning, the truth is this team has been tighter than Marie Osmond prior to joining her Jenny Craig weight loss club attempting to squeeze her way into her “skinny jeans”.


    Waddaya think??

    I might shorten it to "tighter than a pre-Jenny Craig Marie Osmond squeezing into her skinny jeans." If a joke or snarky remark gets too long it often loses the humor.
