In the post this morning, I received a most unusual letter from Mr. Ploop, a friend of mine currently in the process of compiling the world’s first Plooptionary, comprising a series of scientific graphs attempting to make sense of the mad and crazy world we live in. It is a fine tome, so I was pleased to hear from him.
In the letter, Mr. Ploop asked me to help him develop one of his recent studies into the nature of arguments. Specifically, he wrote, “So letâ€™s get to the bottom of this – how do you win an argument and what are your secret weapons if an argument is not going your way?“
Never being one to shy away from an argument myself, and having been embroiled in a fair few rather… heated debates in my time, I elected to aid Mr. Ploop by sketching out my own graph demonstrating my own particular tactic in winning any conflagration I may encounter.
I present my findings below, to edify and illuminate future generations.
