17. Oh good golly....



If an article is entitled:

"Why did the children put beans in their ears?"

And the text of the article is:

"Children put beans in their ears for several reasons. We surveyed 100 children who put beans in their ears to determine why they did it. The primary reason why children put beans in their ears is due to oppositional behavior in response to being told not to. Such oppositional behavior in children - i.e. doing things for no reason other than they have been told not to - is an important milestone in testing and developing an independent identity."

Again, the larger point here is that the article title is a descriptor of the content of the article. You have not made one comment on the contents of the article in question, but dismiss the title as a "logical fallacy".
