Dan McKay, a Microsoft analyst from North Dakota, won an annual contest for bad writing by submitting an analogy that compared working on carburetors to fondling a woman's breasts. It goes a little something like this…

"As he stared at her ample bosom, he daydreamed of the dual Stromberg carburetors in his vintage Triumph Spitfire, highly functional yet pleasingly formed, perched prominently on top of the intake manifold, aching for experienced hands, the small knurled caps of the oil dampeners begging to be inspected and adjusted as described in chapter seven of the shop manual."

Great, now it's going to feel like I'm violating my car every time I go to change its oil. Thanks, man.
P.S. In response to protests about the previous pic featuring a pair of breasts, we've gone with this one which, if you squint and tilt your head a bit, still kind of look like a pair of breasts.
