Meta! What is it good phor?

Two people are walking and talking. Panel 1 of 2: Person 1 says, "I'm trying to free myself from metaphors." Person 2: "But your stated goal is itself a conceptual metaphor." Panel 2 of 2: Person 1 says, "I see that now. Then my struggle must necessarily be in vain." Person 2: "Do you want me to keep pointing out the metaphors, or would that be adding insult to injury?" Person 1: "Do whatever you like. Our entire existence is merely an obscure and overwrought joke."

Language and thought are a prison!
