    Its a metaphor because it uses one thing to describe another but it doesnt use "like or as".

    Pun = A joke of some sort formed by playing with a word/words.

    Metaphor = Compares two things using "like" or "as".

    Onomatopoeia = A word that has a sound effect to it. (Ex. Boom!)

    Simile = Compares two things using "is".

    To be perfectly honest, I think it's more of a pun over the other 3 choices. It's a phrase that is made by playing around with the words.

    It's not comparing two things, so I don't think it should be considered as a metaphor or a simile.

    It's not a sound effect, so it can't be an onomatopoeia.

    So, Imma go with a pun.

    I needed help with this question on my homework :D I have to go with metaphor. On my homework paper, there is no metaphor so I have to go with the most closest answer simile.

  • pun- It doesn't sound like a play on words

    metaphor- It could symbolize something without using "like" or "as"

    onomatopeia- it isn't a sound

    simile- it doesn't use "like" or "as"

    So I think metaphor
