“Analogy is not the study of buttholes”

“Analogy is not the study of buttholes” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. Some people assume this, from the “anal” in “analogy.”

how come ‘analogy’ doesn’t mean the study of the anus?

“anus” is latin and “proktos” is greek, and we have the greek ( heh, heh ) “proctology”, for the study of the “proktos”.
 
Of course “analogy” is from “ana-logos”. which has nothing to do with the latin “anus” which is related to the latin “anulus,” “ring,” but it does make for a curious situation.
