they wear glasses....
Koopin

Thank you for posting your argument.
Your resolution is:
Owls are smart because they wear glasses.

Owl: Chiefly nocturnal birds of prey.
Smart: Having or showing quick intelligence or ready mental capability.
Glasses: Also called eyeglasses. a device to compensate for defective vision or to protect the eyes from light, dust, and the like, consisting usually of two glass or plastic lenses set in a frame that includes a nosepiece for resting on the bridge of the nose and two sidepieces extending over or around the ears

I have nothing else to say on the matter until round two. Thank you.

i do not understand your logic in posting the definitions of the subject.

owl: a smart birdy that knows stuff and is often considered wise because they are old and have a hooky nose

Thank you for posting your next argument.

You, being Pro, failed to provided a definition in round 1.
In a debate, when Pro fail to provide a definition then Con gives it.

I do not know where you got your definition, but when an owl is born it is not old as you claim.

Remember your resolution?
"Owls are smart because they wear glasses."
You did not say anywhere that they are CONSIDERED smart.

Audience I heavily urge a Con vote.

Thank you for posting your last argument.
My is basing everything off of a picture that she found.

Anyone should know that pictures are not proof.
Especially cartoons.

My opponent has also failed to show that owls are ancient creatures.
One can not debate on just what one knows.

Audience, my opponent, has failed.

I again urge a Con vote.

Thank you.

Lol, who are you to speak for all chickens?

Maybe their is a large group that you are ignorant of that actually like him =P.

Foghorn Leghorn is an outcast.
Chickens everywhere hate him for representing us.

But we can't not base all chickens off of one. It is like saying

"All humans want to kill people because Osama wants to."

Last time I checked Foghorn Leghorn is a live chicken who can be rude =P.

I meant an alive chicken.

Example,
Someone who is alive would be a human being,
Though someone who is dead would just be a corpse.

The "chicken" in the link below is a corpse, and a yummy one at that.
