Nicely said: 'quilting with fishnets' edition

Do you ever run across a turn of phrase that you hadn't heard before, that is so vivid and laser sharp that you wish you had a use for it right now, just off the top of your head?

How about this one from a post critiquing the use of data by a pro-abortion group:

This is like stitching a quilt from fish nets.
Well, yes, now that you put it that way, a lot of reports and/or conclusions based (or supposedly based) on statistics are exactly that.

I wish I'd come up with that. It makes the problem so clear. At least to me.

Now comes the hard part. Now I have to be careful not to use it where it doesn't fit, just because I want to use it for something...
