Those damned lawyers

What's Mallard raving about today?

Trial lawyers, Hezbollah, Mako Sharks, Gingivitis

Sweet lord, this is the worst example of parallel structure I've ever seen. The only one of the three comparisons that represents an apples-to-apples comparison is the one involving the Mako Shark. The rest are just weird and wrong. The Hezbollah comparison is especially mystifying since it includes the image of some guy in a polka-dot bow tie (not the image which comes to mind when I think of Hezbollah) and an unprovoked attack on The Rotary Club.
