May I recommend "Fry's English Delight" - a BBC radio programme on the use
of metaphore by one of the more eloquent commentators. Not only is it a
relaxing diversion from the usual business of the forum, but it illustrates
the pervasiveness of metaphore - including the fact that he use of the word
"metaphore" is itself a metaphore.    (01)

It can be found via http://bbc.co.uk/radio4 or, more directly
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00d3q63    (02)

It will be available over the next six days.    (03)

Note: it is designed for English audiences, but Americans should get about
80% of the references, though non-English speakers may find it tricker.    (04)
