I too like using analogies. While working in IT sales, it was a way to "dumb things down" so those that didn't have the knowledge could understand what I was talking about.

Why can't people just stop looking for things to be offended by?

It's like a bunch of soccer moms with nothing better to do than complain.

That's exactly the type that seem to make the most noise on the Web......the perpetually disgruntled. We've had a streak of them lately. It goes like that sometimes.

Personally I love using analogies. There are always a lot of parallels and common ground with different endeavors. It helps people understand something better when you can help them relate it to something they're already familiar with. It can also give people a new perspective on things they either didn't understand or hadn't considered before.
