Starting in the second round, Pro and Con must try to sell the plain white cup (shown below) to the voters. The coffee cup may not be changed or decorated in anyway by Pro or Con.



This is supposed to be a fun little crazy pitch over a coffee cup. Let's have a little fun with this :) (cursing and profanity is allowed so long as it is used in an entertaining manner)

Pro

Do you see this coffee cup? DO YOU SEE IT??? THIS, is the future of coffee cups, and your life. Our lives have just gotten purely out of control. They are just too damn complicated!!!!!!!!!!! What with smart-phones, computers, and *shudders* the Internet, we need to just get back to our roots. Simplify some things here and there, STARTING WITH YOUR COFFEE MUG!!!!!!!!!! Let's take a look at your current coffee mug shall we? It probably has a "lid" and "ergonomic handle" and it might even be, ugh, insulated. Do you really need all that? Does anybody remember the good old days of simple coffee mugs that when you moved to fast with it you spilled hot coffee all over yourself and burned your junk? Good times. Lets get back to basics and go back to glory days of the coffee mug. BUY THIS DAMN COFFEE MUG NOWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lol have fun with it :)

This coffee cup will change your life. Go into your kitchen and look in your cupboard. Mugs. A ton of them. All different colours and shapes and sizes and patterns. What has happened to our society that something as innocent and plain as a mug should be abused, dressed up like a boy by his older sisters. You disgust me. All the children dying in Africa could do with just 50p for enough food for a week. You waste that extra 50p on stupid colours for your mug. You. Disgust. Me.

Just look at the mug. Look at it. Imagine what potential this mug holds. You think: hmm...my white Americano will look cool in that.
I say: you have no imagination. This mug could do ANYTHING. This mug could hold a double-strength mocha with whole-milk, whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles. MOTHERFUCKING SPRINKLES! This mug could be the first mug in space. This mug could save your life by knocking out any burglars late at night. This mug could be the perfect gift for your anniversary when you forgot.. :o

This coffee cup will change your life. Buy it.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro had better S/G and neither side had any poor conduct worth penalising. Neither side used sources either. I gave arguments to Pro because of his multi-pronged strategy: both appealing to the reader's sensitivities and emotions whilst also showing the infinite possible uses of the coffee club (he made this clearer than Con did).
