"我这好有一比啊,好比王奶奶碰到了玉奶奶,就差那么一点."   

如何能翻译好上面这句话,既能准确表达意思,又能不失汉语的幽默

谢谢

I would like to illustrate with a comparison. They are like the letter "l" and "i" - the former is different from the latter only in a dot.

这个里面的差一点有双重含义,一个是笔画上差一点,一个是在某某方面(例如水平,学识,经验等等......)差一点.

I could be a good match there, like a Grandma Jan vs a Grandma Jane - just a tad short/different.

This is a tough one.  
好比王奶奶碰到了玉奶奶,就差那么一点
If you consider who the two ladies are, the sentence actually means: A little dot makes a big difference.
