Thought ya'll might like to travel the travails of comedy divine...
Wrestling with the inner/outer self.
Value of the guide becomes irrelevant in the end.
Decisions of the self increase....
Chiasmic Triple tercet of tactics.
Plus random structures of context and images.
Song sssStructure: ABA BCB CDC DED CDC BCB ABA
Rhyme and reason; rejection is hell.
Blaming Everyone, but yourself.
It gets better, once you get rolling...
Try not to assume so much along the way.

Great thread idea OP. Looking up examples about this subject I noticed most of the videos about specific fallacies are made in India. Maybe that's just the cookie monster feeding me free samples...This one involves a little thinking. It gives a decent explanation of syllogisms.Systematically solve any syllogism problem within a minute without using Venn diagram. This method is called Aristotle's method and it is highly effective, just like solving two mathematical equation.
Therefore you are a chicken. Isn't that something?

I like Homophones. These are words with different spellings and meanings but sound the same. Like 'soul' and 'sole'.
They're different from Homographs: which are words that are spelt the same but have different meanings. Like 'spring' which means 'to jump' or a season
Then we get to Oronyms, which is apparently a word invented by Gyles Brandreth, and quite frankly I wouldn’t put it past him. An Oronym is a sequence of words that sound the same as another, with endless comic possibilities. The brain hears speech not as individual words but as an overall flow which it has to try to interpret, and what with accents and mispronunciation and slang, it’s hardly surprising that occasionally we get it wrong.
“The stuffy nose can lead to problems.”
“The stuff he knows can lead to problems.”
Actually, by far the best example I can give of Oronyms at work is the Four Candles sketch by the Two Ronnies.

Spreading black plague
For years people have been complaining of waste running down the rivers in America. Doing some research in my own state reveals much behind the curtain of politics we all face today. The great show on the major media hardly touches the real concerns facing the infrastructure of our country today.

I found a great thread from another site. It offers an artistic approach at creating 'enchantments'. Whether by words and phrases, images, and sound. An inspirational approach that may help others transform their own personal relationships into something more positive.
An Art form of great Quality

That is the question.... :chicken4:
I'll offer a bit here on Chickensomething of what I added on this interesting thread. It dovetails into something I've been thinking about for some time...
Regarding the enchantments created by the medium in which I call like to call 'The Flickers'. An old term. A 'magic' word used by people long since dead when Magic lanterns became something more....
I'll try to get to more on magic words at the end of this post.
The problems and dangers of time travel. Sometimes, it's real hard getting back to the future. Ah well, I guess that's just the pro's and con's of hitch hiking. The guide on the galaxy is pretty good for that. All this led to a bit of visual psychology. You know, the hypnotism of the flickers. Symbolism of imagery combined with sounds and music. Looking at iconography and how it can be used for enchantments. Showing major contentions in the psychological injections of ideas and fantasies into our minds and ultimately our human spirit. These injections include both positive and negative stimulus.
Which ingredients for enchantments are the best kind? We could use humor as an example. Divide it in two. One side comedy, the other satire. Comedy is positive. Satire is negative.
Visuals in black and white. Silent film era...Positive and negative flickers of thought! Yeah, I know these are old flickers of enchantment, but, I think they're pretty good. Those old enchanters really knew what they were doin.
Harold Lloyd - Satire
His films seem to mock the human condition and enjoy doing it. Extreme situations of danger and personal catastrophe . Master at editing and clever camera work. Willing to do own stunts at great hazard.
Charlie Chaplin - Comedy
Comedy with etiquette and finesse. Positive in a world of suffering. The tramp should never talk. He says enough by his genius at silent lucid gesture.
Can this be a magical word of enchantment?
In those days your subtitle count was the measure of your art...
Now, I gotta ask, is this really good etiquette at the table?

We could mention some of the nefarious selling procedures practiced by the cell phone companies. Always pushing the bundles and getting people to sign contracts that lock them into cages filled with debt and more price increases along the way. These contracts only ever work one way. To benefit the seller. Nevermind the inside theft and little discrepancies appearing with bonus' for the bigger fish. Tricking proxy holders into signing extra rewards to the sycophants just for doing their jobs. Cooking for accountants 101...

Thank you for the pin!
Welcome! In fact, looks like it might be good for a perma pin!

Those are always good. Little sites that offer simple links to stuff. This link is nice in looking for specific task minded software...Windows Download HubsDownload Hubs help you to easily and quickly find software that performs a specific task. But here's the twist: we won't just recommend the "best apps ever" and force you to take our word for it.Instead, our editors create a list of hand picked software titles that can accomplish the task and you can make a choice based on your own criteria.
That one is really good! A task criteria driven search engine. Nice!

Suppose it symbolizes adding fuel to burn for vain glory?!
Concentrating and condensing Itself for the chosen few .. or predestined.
The extreme use of prejudice denotes an escalation in hatred beyond insanity.
A Common factor with all groups with extreme prejudicial viewing systems:
They destroy not only a whole groups of human beings, but, all traces of their books, their artwork, their knowledge...
An evil, single minded force to wipe clean all traces of existence.
Follow the trail of all that glittering silver and gold coming over from the New World.
What did it finance?
What debts did the Crown incur?
Blood and Gold The Making of Spain
To whom were these debts paid to?
Where is all that gold and silver today?

One of my favorites.
He and many others formed the foundation for the power of movie magic upon the soul of all mankind.

This is a very profound speech that holds true today more than ever about the fading human condition. Charlie Chaplin was way ahead of his time. This YouTube Video really accentuates this brilliant speech from the "Great Dictator"
This was from 1940. Makes you wonder how people got so stupid over the last 77 years. Progress for humanity? I think not.
