First person POV and metaphor

I want to read more first person narration from the POV of stumbling characters who try to speak in excellent metaphor or simile, but fail.

Her face was like a fat pig face, but with a lot of blonde hair on top.

That kind of thing provides excellent characterization.  It’s lovable writing.
