    A is to A as B is to B: the contest

    The topic was introduced on this thread. Now let's try something a little more interactive - I'll post an 'A is to A' statement and the next repondent will attempt to come up with the best (true, funny, poignant, etc.) 'B is to B' statement. That respondent will also then pose their own 'A is to A' statement and others will follow suit in turn (in other words, answer and then provide a new one for others to answer).

    I'll start -

    LOL! Outstanding! But now you need to pose your own 'A is to A' statment.....

    Tell you what ....I'll start with another 'A is to A' statement and then the next person who responds should provide both a 'B is to B' statement and also their own 'A is to A' statement. Kapish?

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
