Like they were drawn by a drunk with an Etch-a-Sketch

Harper's republishes its list (from May 2005) of similes recently used by journalists to explain the shape of legislative districts, including:
Like embryos
Like a crab with two narrow claws
Like a ribbon of shame
Like a bad restaurant-floor accident
Like an upside-down swan
Like a backward C with a fat middle
Like a bucket of earthworms
Like long fingers
Like a gun pointed east
