Here's the dialogue from a Dilbert cartoon that came up on my calendar the other day...
Pointy-haired boss: "If we can put a man on the moon, we can build a computer made entirely of recycled paper."
Dilbert: "Your flawed analogy only shows that other people can do things."
Boss: "Maybe you should call other people and ask how they do it."
Dilbert: "Maybe they use good analogies."
Yes, there is a relevant point in there, but I won't belabor it.
