The stupidest simile in the whole wide world

Without question, the stupidest simile in the history of similes is drunk as a skunk. skunk

It is a simile not based upon meaning but simply upon rhyme.

Skunks have absolutely nothing to do with alcohol consumption or inebriation.

Skunk and drunk rhyme.  That is the extent of the simile.

That makes it incredibly stupid.

As stupid as:

Big as a twig

As sad as glad

As nice as an improvised explosive device

Except these aren’t universally utilized similes.

Drunk as a skunk is.

Please help me put an end to it.
