FWD: FWD: FWD: FWD: FWD: Drinking non alcoholic beer is like going down on your cousin..sure it taste the same but its just wrong. Keep it going!
from a 702 phone number, Thursday, August 28, 11:47 PM

This reminds me of one of my favorite ever New York Times editorials about analogies. Sure, drinking non-alcoholic beer is similar to going down on your cousin in some regards; for example, both are "just wrong." But the analogy doesn't really stand because drinking non-alcoholic is different from going down on your cousin in some significant regards; for example, one of those actions is cause for incarceration and/or birth defects, while the other is cause for being able to drive home without crashing your car. Do you know which is which?

I don't think that going down on your cousin can cause incarceration or birth defects.
