Dumbass Phrase: "Sticks Out Like A Sore Thumb"

Who the hell comes up with these phrases like "Sticks out like a sore thumb"? Most of the time when you have a sore thumb its inflamed a few millimeters at most. No one is going to notice that if they're right up close to you much less from farther away. Instead of saying "Sticks out like a sore thumb" people should say "Sticks out like a giant tumor", "Like a minority enjoying NASCAR", or "Like an adam's apple on a tranny" or something that people can more easily relate to. Those are things people can actually notice. A sore thumb on the other hand, that's actually one of the LAST things someone will notice about you.

A new new hairdo is way more noticeable than a sore thumb. Ear piercings, a hunchback, camel toe, these are things that make you stick out way more than a sore thumb. But just try saying someone "Sticks out like a camel toe" instead. Society won't accept it, which is unfortunate. It's unfortunate that we live in a culture where saying logical things is frowned upon and saying ridiculous, archaic nonsense is second nature. We need to start re-examining these parts of speech and updating them before we lose all grasp on sanity and what's real.
