First of all, I would like to thank my opponent for challenging me, of all people, to this most wonderful and thought-provoking debate.

Now, Pro has posted no arguments other than restating verbatim the resolution, so I will move on to my own arguments.

Now, the initial assertion of "bleh" could mean anything. The uniform capitalization and utter lack of punctuation broaden the possibilities even further. Pro has not offered any explanation, so that allows me to interpret it myself, and I have deduced that the most probable explanation is that it is a clever acronym for "Blancmanges like (to) eat humans." This is an obvious reference to Monty Python, more specifically when Mary Podgorny is eaten by a blancmange. However, the goal of the blancmanges was to win Wimbledon, and this was primarily accomplished not by eating people, but by turning them into Scotsmen. Also, this is grossly stereotyping Blancmanges. Even though one blancmange did happen to eat Mary Podgorny, most blancmanges are completely peaceful. I've never actually eaten one, but I understand that many people eat blancmanges without feeling even the slightest bit threatened or have any inkling whatsoever that said blancmange would have any intention of eating him or her. Perhaps if the resolution had stated clearly that Blancmanges from the planet Skyron in the galaxy of Andromeda like to eat humans, that could be a better argument, but it currently just states that all blancmanges like to eat humans, which is a gross exaggeration.

Thank you, Inception, for your delightful and insightful argument. Since you have managed to give me even less to work with on this round than the previous, which is no small feat, I will extend my blancmange argument. I will say, though, that, unlike the first argument, your spelling and grammar was impeccable in this argument. Mazel tov.
