This is off the top of my head, so will have to work on it.

Keeping in mind this was ICANN and Afilias business, I would use the analogy:

Of a bank with security experts (Afilias) and the police force (ICANN) allowing people to cash cheques (domains) without seeing if the signature (trademark) matched the cheque name (trademark) or even validating the date.

This is apart from the fact they did not check to see if they owned the account (owned the trademark).
