An apt simile

"I dare you to give me permission to circulate this story up and down California Street! Yes, sir, I dare you - and you aren't game! Why, everybody would be cheering for me and laughing at you, and you'd get about as much sympathy as a rich relative with arterial sclerosis."

(from Cappy Ricks, by Peter B. Kyne)
