Mm... chicken. Very tasty. I don't care what you say. Mm.

Con

With the greatest respect, I have to say that my opponent has got it all wrong.

Chicken is not intrinsically tasty at all. In fact, boiled on its own in water it's totally insipid. However, it can seem tasty when coated in breadcrumbs that have been seasoned with a secret formula of 11 herbs and spices and lightly fried to golden perfection (1), but without the added flavourings, it's completely bland.

Indeed, my opponent might as well argue that blood is tasty. It isn't, of course, at least not on its own, but when mixed with oatmeal, fat, herbs and spices and made into a sausage and gently fried or grilled, it is absolutely scrumptious. For some reason, this delicacy is not widely consumed outside Europe where it is known variously as "black pudding" in the UK (2), "Blutwurst" in Germany (3), "morcilla" in Spain (4) and "boudin noir" (5) in France.

In my opinion congealed blood, when properly prepared and cooked, is much tastier than chicken.

Thank you.

Nothing beats a bit of black pudding.......besides white pudding!!!

Not so tasty when you eat it raw though.....unless your drunk actually.

Having a better argument wins three points. Awarding all seven to Con is most likely for some reason other than the merits of the debate. That meets the definition of vote bombing. It is not necessarily more than a "dopey debate" reaction.

I dont think Its vote bombing, the argument was far more convincing!

Chicken IS tasty on its own. It is another one of those self-evident truths.

I don't see how spelling and conduct could be other than a tie.

well I didn't vote because I'm not sure what to make about this, but apparently 3 people thought all seven points ought to go to con. Maybe this is an example of that vote-bombing phenomenon?

I would have said that it would taste terrible to consume raw chicken, or rotten chicken, etc. Or basically use the route I used in my "humans are delicious" debate @.@

Tat I have to say the amount of rigor in your debates, lately, has been leaving much to be desired :)

Lol was that a failed attempt to lure someone into a trap?
