For my AP laguage class, we have been assigned to write a paper full of rhetorical fallacies. The subject is: Should students be given a trophies in sports, even if they lose. It is also a contest, so it would help if it was funny. Suggestions?

Yes: Do your own homework and don't spam the forums.

You want a fallacious argument for losing teams receiving trophies?

Lol, I was just asking for suggestions, not for you to write the paper.

Writing the paper is the easy part. Coming up with the ideas and solution to the problem is the hard part. Case in point: you spamming forums to get other people to do your homework.

So you have your suggestions, go.

Haha.
I thought this forum was referring to http://www.bigskydebate.com... which happens to be a savor to some friends of mine and me when researching.

But other than that, post this in the right forum.

And I don't see any reason to diminish the meaning of actually winning. Trophies for everyone can kill competition.

They should get the worst players of the game award. What it looks like: a baseball player sitting on a stool with a broken baseball bat and a dunce cap
