A Fucking Brilliant Analogy

a: Benzene ~
b: an oreo cookie

What: "Kevin noticed the utterly perplexed and strained expression on Clyde's face. He went over what he'd said again, pointing to the drawing of the structure as he explained. He talked Clyde through some practice questions and went over the homework with him. When he believed Clyde understood it better, he rummaged in his bag and pulled out a packet of Oreos. Opening the packet, he held the top one up between his middle finger and thumb. "The structure of benzene is like this Oreo. Where the cookie is made up of the six electrons and the cream is made up of the hydrogen and carbon bonded covalently. The cookie gives the cream in the middle unusual stability, aromatic stability." The linked page is a nice discussion of teaching chemistry.
