"Jingo slithered into the bar like a vaseline salamander in a sharkskin suit."If he'll send me his postal address at detectivesbeyondborders (at) earthlink (dot) net, I'll send his prize: His choice of the copy of Farewell, My Lovely that gave rise to the contest, or Boiling a Frog, a novel by an author who goes over the top in a different way: Christopher Brookmyre. If he has those already, I'll send another book from the Detectives Beyond Borders Crime Fiction Collection.
Honorable mention goes to Adrian McKinty's "He stuck out like a reasonable man in the Fox News building."
Thanks to all for the verbal high jinks and for helping me clear a bit of space in my book-muddled house.
