A Whole Book Of Medical Analogies
a: Myosin ~
b: a hot dog surrounded by a thin, holey skin
What: "Also, if we think of actin as bacon wraps, the actin would be the hot dog, the bacon wrapped around it is the tropomyosin, and the troponin is the toothpick. A myofibril is like a hot dog surrounded by a thin, holey skin (SR). These are chilidogs because between the hot dogs are chili beans (mitochondria). The sarcolemma would be the bun." See the other in this link which is a whole book of teaching analogies for human physiology.
