An Onion Metaphor

Don’t allow the word "metaphor" to alarm (or bore) you. Remember...  A metaphor is a figure of speech that identifies something as being the same as some unrelated thing for rhetorical effect, thus highlighting the similarities between the two. Remember...  Rhetorical means that it is expressed in such a manner as to make a statement or produce an effect.

Therefore, allow this title and its link intrigue (and challenge) you.

(assuming budget and health concerns allow for generous flexibility)
