A BRAIN CRANK TO GET YA BRAIN CRUNK!

"Hit the lottery, ooh-wee / But with what I gave up to get it was bittersweet / It was like winning a used mink"

Eminem's clever line here makes a comparison to show the price he paid for fame. While he has won the game, the prize is tarnished, as if it were a used mink coat. Mink's top of the line, but a secondhand, thrift-shop mink? Nah - Em ain't feeling it! What type of figurative comparison is this an example of?

A. Hyperbole
B. Soliloquy
C. Metaphor
D. Simile
