WRITING IS LIKE A JUICY AND DELICIOUS HAMBURGER

The top bun is the topic sentence.

The hamburger patty and all of the toppings are all of the detail sentences
The more delicious toppings the better tasting the hamburger is
and the more detail sentences the better the writing.

The bottom bun is the good ending.

What is an Idiom?

An idiom is an expression whose meaning is not clear from the meaning of its words. In other words, idioms have meanings that can not be figured out by looking the words up in a dictionary. They have meanings that are understood by people who speak that language, but are very hard to understand for people who do not speak the language.
