Can we say purple prose?

"Rather, he lingers lovingly over it, back-spinning with such minute precision that he isolates and reorders every phoneme in a technical tour de force that transcends its own virtuosity when it transmutes seamlessly into an equally chopped-up bebop drum solo."

Buh?

Also, seen on some random list: "You have to nip your puppies' problems in the butt before they get any bigger."

We love them mixed metaphors. We don't love our own brain's visual imagery quite so much.

I also like other figures of speech where both words start with the same letter, but can't think of any right now.
