Fragments from Floyd

I Give Up, Dear. Whatever.

It has been a morning at the Argument Clinic. I got the ten argument package.

M:  Look, you just contradicted me.

A:   I did not.

M:  Oh you did!!

A:   No, no, no.

M:  You did just then.

A:   Nonsense!

M:  Oh, this is futile!

A:   No it isn’t.

M:  I came here for a good argument.

A:   No you didn’t; no, you came here for an argument.

M:  An argument isn’t just contradiction.

A:   It can be.

M:  No it can’t. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.

A:   No it isn’t.

M:  Yes it is! It’s not just contradiction.

A:   Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.

M:  Yes, but that’s not just saying ‘No it isn’t.’

A:   Yes it is!

M:   No it isn’t!
