Silliest Thing Contest Update

Hey there.  You have until this coming Sunday night to post the silliest thing you’ve ever heard in the comments section of the original post about that.  Then I will collate all the responses into a new post, and you can all vote on what you think is the best.  The winner will be offered a spot as a guest blogger here at Sappho’s Torque this summer (date to be mutually agreed upon).

Good luck!

The Silliest Thing You’ve Ever Heard Of

So I happened upon this absolutely INANE piece of rubbish today.  It posits that — if I understand correctly — if you believe in global warming, you are most likely a serial killer.  Something like that.

I know, I know, it’s hard to believe “it takes all kinds” when something this BSC comes out.  In its defense, though, this “article” makes a good object lesson on manipulative writing and logical fallacy.

It made me wonder, though:  What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever heard?

Post your response in the comments section, and then we can all share in the insanity.  The person who posts the funniest Most Asinine Thing will get…something.  Not sure yet what.  But something, no doubt.

Go.
