What's the difference between a simile, a metaphor, and an analogy?...
An analogy is a bit more complicated. ... It can be a logical argument: if two things are alike in some ways, they are alike in some other ways as well.
This is an example of illogical reasoning.
True. At best it's sloppy logic. Slogic? It could probably be used to demonstrate a point, but I wouldn't use it to make a real logical argument. (Actually, maybe I would, but I suck at logic.)
