Pro

The resolution is "sources" and the Pro's argument is that he can post more sources then I can.

He has 10 sources total so I must post more sources to win...





[1] E. L. James's "50 shades of Grey: A closer examination of the submissive nature of women in relationships" 2011

[2] J.K. Rowlings "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Guantanamo Bay: A Documentary on former prisoners of the secret US prison" 2005

[3] Hermen Melville's "Move my Dick: The tell all story of why Santorum wanted to ban porn because he couldnt figure out how to clear his internet history" 2010

[4] J. R. R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings: How Larry King somehow got married 8 times to 7 women despite looking like a salami that was left out in the sun for way too long" 1940

[5] Dan Browns "The Lost Symbol: Commissioner Gordon's struggle to communicate with Batman after losing the Bat Symbol in a game of strip poker" 1977

[6] C. S. Lewis's "The Lion, The Witch, and coming out of the Wardrobe: The relationship between Gingrich, Bachmann, and Santorum (respectively) during the GOP Primary" - 2012

[7] Harper Lee's "To Kill A motherf*cking mockingbird: Samuel Jacksons lesser known movie about dealing with birds on a plane" - 1999

[8] Margret Mitchell's "Gone with the wind: A story about the likeability of Mitt Romney" - 1996

[9] Suzanne Collins's "The Hunger Games: What its like to grow up in Africa" - 2005

[10] Alex Comfort "The Joy of Sex" an actual book called the joy of sex - 1972
