I rather like "squalid broom closet" and "flittering flibbertigibbet" myself. What about you?

I told my uncle he looked like a turtle because I had a stuffed animal turtle that somebody bought me and his face look liked the stuffed animal that I saw as a child. It wasn't an insult but my uncle was very embarrassed afterwards and started to wonder if he was ugly. I wasn't trying to insult him though - I personally think that turtles are very cute creatures. I heard him whispering to his wife after I left "why did she say I look like a turtle?" and he looked scared and worried.1
