Much as I hate being a grammar nudge (I'm lying - I really don't hate it that much), doesn't "more like" require or at least imply a "than" clause afterwards, as in:

"Programming is more like Mentos™ than it is like Pez™."

    My thoughts exactly. Well, except that I'd say programming is more like Pez™ than Mentos™. Just to be contrary.

      I can see your point, I suppose, but in the end I would have to plump for rephrasing the thing entirely and deciding that "programming is MOST like Chuckles™."

      And I specifically mean the black, licorice ones, because they are quite obviously the best.

      So we really don't need a poll at all. Q.E.D.

        Have we ever had a one-option poll? That would amuse me.
