I have to write a paper with the subject being "should all athletes be given a trophy, even if they lose?"

I have to use lots of rhetorical fallacies, and it should be funny.

why do you have to use lots of rhetorical fallacies? A part of requirements?

I would do something like, "All poor athletes are nerds. We all know that. If they don't get their trophy, they'll lose confidence and end up spending their lives on World of Warcraft while watching reruns of Star Trek instead of helping disease and curing the elderly."

I know, it's really funny. Give me a break, I just woke up. :P
