CSS is like…

I mused on Twitter recently:

CSS is like chess. You can learn the basics in a day and spend a lifetime mastering it.

I quickly thought it would be fun to collect other people's ideas on what CSS is like. Here is what you said:

@BenTortora:

CSS is like a girlfriend. No matter how hard you try, she will always interpret it a different way.

@colinismyname:

CSS is like marching orders for pixels.

@peterwilsoncc:

CSS is like religion; People quickly become fundamentalists.

@lise_latorre:

CSS is like doing puzzles all day and getting paid for it.

@BreRoz:

CSS is like a pencil to paper; I get any result I want!

@frankstallone:

CSS is like a river, it is always flowing and you have to go with the current not against it.

@rayFinkle:

CSS is like clothes for your HTML.

@bdsexton:

CSS is like an STD; it's unpleasant and you're stuck with it.

@joemsak:

CSS is like giving your girlfriend sexy lingerie. She's already formed well, but you like when she dresses up.

@propstm:

CSS is like pants. You don't have to use it. But you look silly without it.

@jarret23:

CSS is like a box of chocolates you never know what your gonna get.

@iEthan:

CSS is like an old man that doesn't know what he's doing or where he is.

Bobby Phillipps:

CSS is like a Rubik's cube. Sometimes you'll line one part up, but that completely screws up something else you had lined up.

Fede Isas:

CSS is like an old Beatles's song. Simple, but still beautiful.

Mike Rogers:

CSS is like an old man's wiener, some times it just doesn't work the way it's suppose to.
