      Leaving a comment here on paragraph 1 to test out the edit comment function. Which seems to work.

      Face like a slapped arse” is an example of simile.

      “an example of a simile” surely? 😉

      Interesting question! ‘Simile’ and ‘metaphor’ are examples of nouns that can be used with or without the indefinite article. Their use without the indefinite article implies the category rather than a specific example, e.g. “The overuse of simile in his work was rather tiresome.” Discuss 🙂

      I never realised that before, but that makes sense, though your original sentence reads just fine to me either way.

      On a related note, there is one other noun – “Universe” – which some have argued should never be used with the definite or indefinite article. Discuss!

      Done.
