Alright I've seen a lot of these and I think its a good fit for me to get started on DDO ^.^

1st round will just be for acceptance

2nd round both sides will just present a word its definition and how its amusing.

If Con explains why his word is better than Pro then Con loses because Pro cannot refute said arguments.

Good Luck to whoever accepts :D

I accept. Let the word-off begin...
Debate Round No. 1
FIGHTTHEPOWER29

Pro

Epistemology- the branch of philosophy concerned with the nature and scope of knowledge [1]

Many generations of philosophers to come should focus on Epistemology mainly because it focuses on why we think the way we do. This is crucial in taking steps towards a better world because the mindset one has influences all said actions. Therefore Epistemology is a very interesting word and you should vote for Epistemology as being the most interesting word in the round.

Thanks to my opponent for a accepting the debate. I hope the word you pick is interesting :')

Vote Pro !

Con

Eugoogoolizer- One who speaks at funerals.

Why it's humorous: Has anyone ever gone to a funeral and burst out laughing when they say the word "eugoogoolizer"? Maybe it's just me, but that's a hilarious word in such a circumstance.

Fact: The average person is either amused or deathly afraid (hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia, a fear of long words) of "eugoogooolizer." Either way, I urge you to vote Con!

I'd like to point out that Pro did not state that it had to be a real word.

Reasons for voting decision: I like non-troll debaters who accept these debates so they can get them hurried along. So I always give the contender conduct if he/she is not a troll. And personally, I have never heard of con's word so he wins this debate. Amend 1: Not a word in my dictionary. Amend 2: Counter VBing PlanetTutTutTurtle.

Reasons for voting decision: I agree with Con-Pro never specifically said that it had to be a real word, and Con's word by far trumped Pro's.

Reasons for voting decision: I kind of like the word Epistemology because it has a very deep philosophical meaning to it. I had no way to evaluate which word was better, so I picked Epistemology because 1) I like the word personally, and 2) The word Con picked is kind of silly but to laugh at a funeral is kind of wrong.. So she loses conduct too..
