Self Quote: “printed on the mimeograph machine,” (King 973).
Reaction: Seeing the word “mimeograph” reminded me of when I was in elementary school. It was before Xerox machines. The printing machines of old looked like sideways drums and printed in light purple. The teachers would have the ink all over their hands and would smell after printing. They would sometimes call the machines the purple people eater machine.

Literary Quote: “…but Harrison looked like a walking junkyard.”(Vonnegut 6).
In this simile Harrison Bergeron is being compared to a junkyard because he has to wear so many handicaps. There are devices hanging all over him in a chaotic arrangement to try to make him blind, deaf and dumb. He also has to carry extra weight, more than anyone else because he is so big and strong. The author’s purpose for using this simile is to show the reader how freakishly strong Harrison is compared to the rest of society and to paint a vivid picture for the reader of what Harrison looks like.
