The Disney Straw Man/Slippery Slope: Where Logic Goes to Die


Okay, let's show people why the straw man and slippery slope argumenst are logical fallacies... using a Venn diagram!!!

Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto, Mickey & Minnie are all Disney Characters.
Mighty Mouse, Jerry, Mickey & Minnie are all Famous Mice.

Now this should make sense by looking at the chart.  So although Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto are Disney Characters like Mickey & Minnie, they are not also mice...

K here's where we mix it up kids!

Say that we replace "Disney Characters" with "Crack Addicts" and "Famous Mice" with "Prostitutes."

We now see that although Goofy is clearly a crack addict, he is not a prostitute.  Likewise, even though Mighty Mouse is a bangin' hot prostitute, he is not a crack addict.

Just because Goofy likes crack, that doesn't mean he will become a skank.
And just because Mighty Mouse is a wench, that doesn't mean he will become addicted to crack.

The only ones who whore-out to pay for their drug habits are Mickey and Minnie.

Use this flawless logic and you will go far in life.
