I like the Tennis analogy

Pixel peeping is like trying to appreciate a game of TENNIS by crawling on one's hands and knees over the court where it was played ...

.... while examining each blade of grass with a Sherlock Holmes style magnifying glass.

Given the number of pixels on modern sensors, the incongruities of scale in this analogy are not so large as one might think.
