Shall I Compare Thee To A Tetherball? Analogizing Baylor's Brittney Griner

Brittney Griner is a 6-foot-8 women's basketball player at Baylor who dunks in games. How to describe her? With analogy!

A brief and incomplete list of objects and creatures to which Brittney Griner and various parts of her body have been likened: a tetherball, a different species, a Na'vi, an albatross, an amazing creature, a condor, another condor, a mature California condor, something that "flick[s] flies," a pool cue, a teddy bear, a tongue depressor, a jetliner, a mammoth, Kermit Washington, and a pterodactyl. Oh, and another condor.
