Monty Python's "Theory of the Brontosaurus" is totally accurate, with only one exception.

The theory states that the Brontosaurus is "small at one end, grows thicker toward the middle, and small again at he other end"

The pro position states that this is totally accurate, with only one exception.

If it be waffles that ye be wanting then here be the jarl....

The brontosaurus can be described as a small stack of waffles at one end, more in the middle, and fewer again at the other end. And this is descriptive except for one fact.

Since CON is simply waffling PRO will continue. The theory, though very descriptive has one basic flaw. There was no brontosaurus. The body was an Apatasaurus , while the head was totally wrong. So while the theory could be applied to the Apatasaurus, the theory was misapplied when used with the brontosaurus. The exception is that it is a theory about something that did not exist.

Reasons for voting decision: Con totally flubbed a good troll-debate topic by saying nothing. Refusing to debate the topic is a conduct violation. It's rare, but nonetheless bad conduct. I would have argued as Con that the theory of the brontosaurus is correct without exception. Whether the theory was misapplied is irrelevant.
