Meaning: a place of disorder and chaos. Use examples.
Rewrite 1: this place must be run by monkeys2
Rewrite 2: this is the Chucky Cheese for adults
Rewrite 3: it’s like a fire drill run by Keystone Cops
Rewrite 4: this reminds me of a kidn3 on a sugar buzzn4b
Comment: If you’ve never been to a Chucky Cheese, you ought to get to one. Kids run wild between dozens of games and tables full of pizza and birthday cakes. It’s the perfect example of a place in chaos, just what you need to rephrase this cliché.
