As subtle as something else - please?

It seems that people just love the sarcastic simile "as subtle as a fire alarm". I've run across it a few times, and now I'm wanting to hear a different one. Can you think of a decent sarcastic simile for 'subtle'? I need a change. Thanks

Given the day I've just had at work, how about 'As subtle as an unhappy toddler'?

The classic is: as subtle as a pink, neon freight train.

Google suggests, "as subtle as a screen door on a submarine"

I don't think I've ever heard that one. "As subtle as a sledgehammer" is the one I'm familiar with. "As subtle as Donald Trump in a locker room" would also work.

... a blunderbuss.
... an undercover elephant.
... Trump's politics.

As subtle as an American. I think I've said that before...
