Me: Whole Foods’s cheapest apples are $1.99/lb, and Safeway’s cheapest are $1.50, but for $1.99 at Whole Foods you get organic gala apples, and the Safeway apples are crummy cheap apples.
Jared: I challenge you to a taste test.
Me: All right, I accept! I can totally tell the difference between an organic gala apple and a cheap Safeway apple.
Jared: What do you mean by “cheap” and “crummy”?
Me: I don’t know. Red delicious.
Jared: Whoa hey, don’t go into that argumen–
Me: I can totally tell the difference between an organic gala apple and a conventional red delicious.
Jared: Well, that’s not the argument, I was talking about an organic gala apple vs. a conventional gala apple.
Me: Oh, well yeah, I bet I couldn’t tell the difference between those. But the debate was between the cheapest apple at each place, and I say the organic gala is better than the conventional red delicious.
Jared: That comparison’s not fair. It doesn’t even make sense.
Me: Why not? I’m comparing apples to apples.
BOO YAH BOO YAH CHK CHK CHK CHK CHHHHHHH
My new favorite way of saying that something is easy:
“Its like contrasting apples and oranges”
