The old saying goes… #BookBytes 9

As the old saying goes, a chef without taste buds is like a toilet without a flush.

As the old saying goes, a chef who can’t smell is like a bath without a plug.

Are there really old sayings such as these? If there are then I would like to know what would have taken someone to come up with such comparisons.

The above lines are from a middle-grade book The Porridge of Knowledge written by Archie Kimpton and illustrated by Kate Hindley. 

The book is a light read and as it is mentioned in the blurb, it is ridiculously silly.
